Beneath all the glitter
Beneath all of the glitter and all the paper thrown around
Is the spirit of every Christmas with its very tiny sound.
From the smallest piece of candy to the biggest dish of love
Christmas is meant to unite us and lift our thoughts above.
So it is that after the exchanges of much chatter and of gifts
We gather around the table where our focus momentarily shifts
We speak of things we're thankful for and ask blessings for the year
we remember those less fortunate and those not able to be here.
Christmas is not only for the little ones but is truly for everyone
Because so very many years ago the noble act of giving was begun
While keeping His place in Heaven the Almighty Eternal one above
Sent us the very first Christmas Gift that was ever given out of love.
So we keep up with this tradition and we will celebrate every year
For Christmas brings us all together and fills everyone with cheer
We are happy to be the present and also present to every one around
The joy and laughter of Christmas which in our hearts and homes are found.
