the night before Christmas I did bow my head
bended knee alongside my bed.
offer this prayer in whisper, not shout,
know it is heard, I haven't a doubt.
request to you Lord, whose Name is so fair,
world is so bad and we need You down here.
remember Your beckon, Your call and Your plea,
all who are burdened, just come unto Me.
there are so few that have heeded Your call,
hearts are so hardened they've put up a wall
pride and of lust and all manner of sin,
Your offer of life, they do nothing but grin.
hear my prayer my Savior and Lord,
we who are saved speak in one accord.
waiting and watching, and no more to roam,
break through the clouds and come take us Home.
and happy new year to all our brothers and
sisters in Christ, and may 2006 be the year He
does call us Home.
In His name, amen.
