Twas the Night Before Christmas - Christian Version

Twas the Night Before Christmas - Christian Version
By: Heather Smith & Melanie Etheridge

Twas the night before Christmas & all through the house
Not a creature was praying - not one in the house
Thier Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
Becasue Mom and Dad were too busy to share.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed
Not once ever kneeling or bowing thier heads
Mom's wrapping gifts to put under the tree
While Dad's making sure there's nothing wrong with the Wii.

When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter
Dad sprang to his feet to see what was the matter
Away down the hallway he flew like a flash
Looking for the culprit that caused such a crash.

He stopped in his tracks to take in the sight
Of angels declaring the real reason for this night
It was Jesus they said - not Santa or Elves;
You have made this celebration more about yourselves.

The shame Dad felt made him cover his head
Jesus was the real reason just like the angels said
And though Dad posessed worldly wisdom and wealth
He cried when he thought of it in spite of himself.

Now Peace! Now Joy! Now Goodness & Love!
On Mercy & Grace! Now look above!
For God sent His Son to die for your sin
The battle was waged - He fought and you win!

A free gift was given on that Blessed night
The gift of salvation - a gitft you can't buy.

Dad fell to his knees - consumed with regret
He hadn't given JesusHis place of Honor yet
He stood and he cried as the angels rose out of sight
This Christmas would be different - starting tonight!
