Joyful News!

I was going to write a letter
To tell you all my news.
That I have been so busy,
And that I've had the blues;
About my trips and visits,
And where I've hung my hat.
But then I had to wonder
Who wants to heart all that?

The greatest news is Jesus
Who came on Christmas Day
And lived a life so perfect,
Then died a dreadful way.
Because He loved His people
He willingly lay down
His life for our salvation;
Now He wears a Heavenly crown.

This world is full of sadness,
Of misery and strife,
So many people suffer
And children lose their life,
But Jesus brought us blessings
That we should gladly share
To spread His Joy this Christmas
With others everywhere.
