on the 7th day of christmas… Could I Hold the Baby
song by Rachel Mecham Goates
It’s Christmas Eve, I’m tucked in bed,
I’m snug & warm, my prayers are said.
I start to think about the first Christmas night.
The manger warm, the baby fair,
the star that led the shepherds there.
& What I’d say to Mary as she smiled,
at the little Christ child.
Could I hold the baby?
Will He smile at me?
Does he know why he is born,
and what His life will be?
Could I hold the baby,
and tell Him of my love?
How glad I am that Jesus Christ,
was sent from heaven above.
Now every day the whole year through.
I’ll think of all that I can do,
to be like him and live as He showed me how.
And I’ll remember that Christmas toys,
are not as dear as girls and boys,
that Jesus loves each one of us endlessly.
He loves you and me.
