You'll never feel the sting of shame or hate,
You'll walk in comfort and in love's sweet peace,
The Christmas message overcomes your fate
Extends your body's health and yearly lease.
The problem lies when troubles snare our mind
And doubts take charge and snuff the light of Christ
Then lower us to darkness and the grind
Of pain that nullifies His sacrifice.
The cross is empty. All His work is done.
So why allow depression and despair
To break our hearts and never overcome
The knowledge that our lives He did repair?
With Love, forgiveness, hope His message's clear
That Christmas reigns from year to year to year.
