Where are you Lord this Christmas day?
You seem so far away
No one’s showing up at the door
These gifts have left me quite hollow
“We’re busy this year” – my loved ones say
So where are you Lord this Christmas day?
Where are you Lord this Christmas noon?
With you I’d love to commune
I’m sad and dejected and feel all alone
No one’s even wished me over the phone
The neighbors seem all merry and bright
I’m down and out – that is my plight
Where are you Lord, please do come soon
I’ve been waiting a while – it’s now Christmas noon.
Outside my child, where I’ve always been
Hoping against hope, that you would let me in
I’m cold and rejected (The feeling’s not nice)
Ever since you put our relationship on ice
Your pain is the result of my whisper to a shout
Showing you needed me was really the long route
And you will feel my warmth when you thaw me out…
Where are you Lord this Christmas night?
You’ve changed my heart and have set it back right
I’m sorry O Lord; now I truly repent
Suffice to say: “You are sufficient!”
I want you O Lord – come quick, I pray
Stay not just for Christmas, but Everyday!
Then I heard a loud knock – I knew it was Him
As my soul leaped for joy from deep within
“I never left” – said He, as we hugged and cried
Then He brought in a feast… (I nearly died!)
Suddenly it became evident to see:
He was waiting all long to come sup with me
Weary and worn, my wayward heart had roamed
But as soon as He came in, I was finally Home!
