Happy Birthday to Jesus

Happy Birthday to Jesus.

Will you say ‘’Happy Birthday’’ to Jesus,
On Christmas Day this year?
Or will you just drink yourself silly,
on vodka, whisky, or beer?

When you open your presents, at Christmas,
Will you think to yourself, this is fun?
Or will you remember the gifts that were given,
To the child who was God’s only son?

Will you go to a Church in the morning,
To worship our Saviour who died?
Or will you sit laughing and joking,
As peace, joy and love all abide?

Will you think of the man who died for you,
As you sit with your family and friends?
When you don’t pray or read your Bible,
Will your means justify your ends?

I’ll pray and I’ll read my Bible,
No matter what anyone thinks.
I’ll probably eat, a lot of good food,
And may have a couple of drinks.

Whatever may happen this Christmas,
Fantastic or just ‘very nice’.
I won’t forget why we celebrate,
The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
