Some say he’s just a fable, made up by those who need something to believe

A Big Man who really hears you

And actually cares

And if you ask for your heart’s desire

You’ll find a specially wrapped gift Christmas morning

 

Some say he’s just a story, made up by imaginative souls

A Big Man who sees you when you’re sleeping

And knows when you’re awake

And no matter if you’re bad or good

You’ll find a specially wrapped gift Christmas morning

 

Some say he’s just for kids, bright-eyed and wishing

A Big Man who invites you to sit in his lap and share your dreams

And he remembers

And if you merely believe that he’s real

You’ll find a specially wrapped gift Christmas morning

 

Some say

But I believe

 

I believe He’s not a fable

His suit isn’t red and He doesn’t drive a sleigh

But He’s the real Gift-Giver

Robed with righteousness and justice

Riding glorious on the wings of the wind

 

I believe He hears your heart’s desire

And sings over you while you sleep

He collects your tears in His bottle

Folds you in His embrace

And never leaves

 

I believe He gives you what you need

Your deep down, soul-need

Just what you’ve always wanted

 

PEACE

 

So He wraps His gift specially in flesh

And in the cover of night

Lays it in a manger

For you to find on Christmas morning

A baby

Goodness personified

The God-Man who healed, gave, blessed

And was nailed to a tree

And rose victorious

For your salvation

 

Some say

But I believe

 

Merry Christmas!
