Santa's Prayer

The Sleigh Was All Packed, The Reindeer Were Fed
But Santa Still Knelt By The Side Of The Bed

"Dear Father," He Prayed "Be With Me Tonight
There's Much Work To Do And My Schedule Is Tight

I Must Jump In My Sleigh And Streak Through The Sky
Knowing Full Well That A Reindeer Can't Fly

I Will Visit Each Household Before The First Light
I'll Cover The World And All In One Night

With Sleighbells A-Ringing, I Will Land On Each Roof
Amid The Soft Clatter Of Each Little Hoof

To Get Into The House Is The Difficult Part
So I'll Slide Down The Chimney Of Each Child's Heart

My Sack Will Hold Toys To Grant All Their Wishes
The Supply Will Be Endless Like The Loaves And The Fishes

I Will Fill All The Stockings And Not Leave A Track
I Will Eat Every Cookie That Is Left For My Snack

I Can Do All These Things Lord, Only Through You
I Just Need Your Blessing, Then It's Easy To Do

All This Is To Honor The Birth Of The One
That Was Sent To Redeem Us, Your Most Holy Son

So To All Of My Friends, Least Your Glory I Rob
Please Lord, Remind Them Who Gave Me This Job

Amen

At Christmas Time There Was A Man
That Looked So Out Of Place
As People Rushed About Him
At A Hurried Sort Of Pace

He Stared At All The Christmas Lights
The Tinsel Everywhere
The Shopping Center Santa Claus
With Children Gathered Near

The Mall Was Packed With Shoppers
Who Were Going To And Fro
Some With Smiles, Some With Frowns
And Some Too Tired To Go

They Rested On Benches
Or They Hurried On Their Way
To Fight The Crowds For Purchases
To Carry Home That Day

The Music From The Stereo
Was Playing Loud And Clear
Of Santa Claus And Snowmen
And Funny Nosed Reindeer

He Heard The People Talk About
The Good Times On The Way
Of Parties, Fun And Food Galore
And Gift Exchange That Day

I'd Like To Know What's Going On
The Man Was Heard To Say
There Seems To Be Some Sort
Of Celebration On The Way

And Would You Tell Me Who This Is
All Dressed In Red And White
And Why Are Children Asking "Him"
About A Special Night

The Answer Came In Disbelief
I Can't Believe My Ear
I Can't Believe You Do Not Know
That Christmas Time Is Here

The Time When Santa Comes Around
With Gifts For Girls And Boys
When They Are Asleep On Christmas Eve
He Leaves Them Books And Toys

The Man You See In Red And White
Is Santa Claus So Sly
The Children Love His Joyful Laugh
And Twinkle In His Eye

His Gift Packed Sleigh Is Pulled Along
By Very Small Reindeer
As He Flies Quickly Through The Air
While Darting Here And There

The Children Learn Of Santa Claus
While They Are Still Quite Small
When Christmas Comes "He" Is The Most
"Important" One Of All

The Stranger Hung His Head In Shame
He Closed A Nail Pierced Hand
His Body Shook In Disbelief
He Did Not Understand

A Shadow Crossed His Stricken Face
His Voice Was Low But Clear
"After All These Years They Still Don't Know"
And JESUS Shed A Tear
