The schedule’s getting hectic, Lord.
Shoppers push and shove in the store.
They spend money on cheap trinkets
while looking for something worth more.
We need your help to keep centered
on the message of this season.
Help our hearts to be drawn to you
and enable our minds to reason.
May a simple carol touch our soul
and a Christmas card share your love
while we give to a special person
a gift they’ll feel comes from above.
Help us bring peace in a war-filled world
where so many hate their brother
as we show a brilliant example
how to give love to another.
