“Christmas Background” by Michael Marcol

“Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.” Romans 6:13

A joyful song

Swells in the heart,

The Christmas season

Is now at its start.


Lights are glowing,

And bells do ring;

With them we join

In carols we sing.


A Birthday is nearing,

One dear and divine,

The birth of the Savior,

Both yours and mine.


He arrived in poverty

While from eternal wealth,

And pain He suffered

To restore our health.


To Christ we can give

Nothing which can compare

To the priceless gifts

With us He does share.


Yet please Him we will

With the gift of the heart,

Binding ours with His

That both never part


May He then live in us,

As in Him we live:

Yes, may this be the gift

We forever will give.


And in giving to Christ,

We also richly receive:

For nothing blesses more

Than in Him to believe.


So prepare a precious place

For Him today and always;

Enthrone Him in your heart

With love, joy and praise.


And with silver bells,

With caroling voices,

Let your heart sing

As the world now rejoices.


For a Birthday is nearing,

One dear and divine,

The birth the Savior

Both yours and mine.
