“Christmas”: A Poem to Ponder


“‘Christmas’: A Poem to Ponder”

By Renee Green

We’re told in the Bible to give God the glory,

But come Christmas time, why, that’s another story.

For another is worshipped and given the power.

Santa’s praises are sung and heard every hour.


“You’ better watch out!” the grown-ups proclaim,

“For Santa knows all, and you’ll be to blame

If no presents are found hidden under the tree!”

So everyone is good so that Santa will see.


And the true God of power is all but forgotten.

But, “Oh, no,” you say, “You make us look rotten!”

“Put Christ back in Christmas, oh that is our cry!”

“But why should our God,” I must ask with a sigh,


“Be brought to such levels, and only remembered

As a babe in a manger, born in December?”

If you look through His Word from cover to cover,

You’ll have to admit, this date you won’t discover!


Nor are we told to think of this day,

But to remember our Savior in quite another way.

He is not in a manger, nor a child is He,

But God who arose for the whole world to see.

For our Christ is God, and at this hour,

He is sitting in Heaven in all truth and power.
