The Single Star



Happy Holidays and Merry Christmastime,
Stressed-out people forced to wait in line--
Spoiled children compete for Santa’s lap--
Plastic people caught in the plastic trap

Beyond all the glitter and flashing lights;
Beyond all hopelessness lost in the night:
Look up above the tree--see the single star?
It shows The Way to Christ for all who’re far

Choose today which path you will take:
Will you follow the plastic path so fake?
Look up above the mall--see the single star!
It shines The Way to Christ for all who’re far

In the end there is only One star, not many or three:
Follow it now to bow before Jesus, The King

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be 
  upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, 
   The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6

"And the King shall answer and say unto them, 
  Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one 
   of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."  
                                            Matthew 25:40

"Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made 
     that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
"Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter 
     and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you 
     in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall 
     receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

"For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, 
     even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
"And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, 
      Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
"Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: 
      and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls."
                                                                Acts 2:36-41
