"The Night Before Christmas"
The Stranger -Cont.
"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 ears!
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're 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 a 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.
