Another Christmas comes at last
Another year has quickly passed
The world seems in turmoil still
With no end to the troubles and ill will.
We've had mass shootings of revelers
In Las Vegas which gave sadness
We've had children and church goers
Slaughtered by people in sheer madness.
Our families have increased in size
With little ones looking around with wonderous eyes
Some of our family members have gone away
To be seen by all in Heaven on a future day.
Our President has been trying to
Keep all prospering, especially you
The dissenters keep hollering and you can hear them say
They are not happy with our President in any way.
We had lots of storms and hurricanes galore
From Texas to the Florida Keys and how the rain did pour
But through it all we fought it out and brushed it off once more
Toughened up, rolled up our sleeves and got to work to rebuild our shores.
North Korea is trying to start a war
It seems that everyday their leader goes too far
Threatening the world with new found nuclear power
Pushing things up to the final hour.
In baseball, the Houston Astros won the series
They beat the Dodgers and some eyes were teary
Regardless of the winning team
Some of the games were really a dream.
Football players are kneeling for our anthem
Disrespecting our country while making lots of wampum
It seems to me that if they want to change things soon
There are lots of positive ways to get them done.
The most important thing is our Savior of course
His birthday helps us to stay the course
His death has given us our true salvation
Regardless of our race or nation.
So let us all rejoice and celebrate
This time of joy and rememberance
Please remember as you enjoy the season
That Jesus is the only reason.
