Our Christmas tree 1996
"Jesus is the Answer Every Time" by the Statler Brothers
By: Frances McCrory Meservy 1996
Shout our mischievous little boys. Too tired to enjoy the children's surprise.
We expect many a wonderful thing They watch as paper is thrown
Our pretty little girls sing. And in amazement hear a child groan.
Mom & Dad work hard for enough Santa's been generous
To buy all the expensive stuff. Mom & Dad grow curious.
They search high and low, All that time and money spent
Then wrap and tie with a bow. And a child's temper is vent.
Finally at last They haven't been up long
Christmas Eve is past. What could possible be wrong?
Dad's worn out and tired How could they have been deceived
From some assembly required. If only they had believed.
Santa's come at last Things never bring joy
And the rush is past. It first must be in the heart of the boy.
Oh how the gleeful sounds It comes from nothing under the tree
From the living room abounds. It's from Jesus and it's free.
