Before you get entangled in the Christmas lights
Run to The Light of the World

Before your inner glutton feasts on Christmas lunch
Run to the One born in the House of Bread (Beth-lehem)
The Bread of Life that will always satisfy 

Before you panic over christmas gifts and what to get
Think about the Greatest Gift of all time
Your Redemption

Before you panic over guests coming over
Think of those who have no one

Before you get caught up in the hustle and bustle
Sit quietly at the feet of the King, 
Ponder on the miracle of Christmas
The King of the universe, born as a baby
