Wake up! It’s more than time to give thanks and praise
to our God who helps us in all our ways.
The season of giving and receiving unfolds,
so let us relax, go forth and be bold.
This holiday comes at the end of each year
So let us shout for joy and be clear
Remember it’s all about our Lord and those
really in need,
so let’s forget about ourselves, there’s
no time for greed.
We keep giving to people who have more
than enough, come on look around
do you really need all that stuff?
Shopping for presents is a yearly tradition
It’s time to change this compulsive condition
Stressing and frustrated from all the rush
Spending money we don’t have
until we’re crushed
Living paycheck to paycheck to pay all the bills,
believe me when I tell you this is no thrill.
At the end of the year when you think
you’re ahead, the Santa syndrome
Hits you hard on the head
Christmas music entices you to
shop till you drop
As you shop for the season and you
Just want to stop.
Our lives are not defined by how much
we have, but how much one gives to those
who are sad.
It’s time to change our obvious response
to a life filled with desires and wants
time to change our conclusion
Get out of this illusion
Place a limit on your family and friend giving
So you can really start living
Stay alert find the charities who are truly
Make a switch, change your life
Remember what life is really about.
