ONCE MORE

Well, it’s almost over for this year

table has been cleared of too much food

dishes piled in sinks needing attention

desserts uneaten waiting on counters

while groans, sighs and soft snores

emanate from couches many slouch-ants

Did anyone bother to give thanks

Gifts from acquaintances who come once a year

brief visits from friends, next door neighbors

why no calls from children or grandchildren

is this how getting old is supposed to feel

It takes one back to another day, another time

can you imagine how our Savior feels today

when all his birth means to so many

is party and gift, party and gift, party and gift

Jesus is the only one who should ever ask

ā€œWhat did you get for me?’ but then, He knows

We sing a beautiful song that has these words

ā€œI owed a debt I could not pay,

He paid a debt He did not owe, He paid it all.ā€
