I love fudge and divinity and cookies of all shapes
but have to be careful for figure's sake.
Eating too much and forgetting to exercise
will cause scale to groan, it's simply not wise.
In the name of Christmas we indulge in excess
of food and drink and suffer stomach distress.
Remember the reason we celebrate?
Jesus was born! Isn't it great?
The Babe of Bethlehem meek and lowly
born in a stable, do you know the story?
Search out a place and read it or hear it
you'll thrill anew, He'll feel so near.
It's the Christmas story, full of cheer
tell it to everyone you hold dear
One day He'll return to this earth you see
not as a babe, but in majesty.
He'll come in clouds, a trumpet will sound
through the hills and valleys, how it will resound!
Soon now, Christmas Day will be here
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
