A Christmas Reflection

A Christmas Reflection
I see the countless Christmas trees

Around the world below,

With tiny lights, like heaven's stars

Reflecting in the snow.

The sight is so spectacular,

Please wipe away that tear,

For I am spending Christmas

With Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs

That people hold so dear,

The sounds of music can't compare

With the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you

Of the joy their voices bring;

It is beyond description

To hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,

But please remember, dear,

That I am spending Christmas

With Jesus Christ, this year.

I can't tell you of the splendour

Or the peace inside this place.

Can you imagine Christmas

With Our Saviour face to face?

I'll ask Him to light your spirit

As I tell Him of your love;

So, pray for one another,

As you lift your eyes above.

(Dedicated to those who have lost a loved one during the past year)
