>I’ve Learned to Wait for Christmas

>

I’ve learned to wait for Christmas
As it comes around each year.
Still with anticipation
As the time draws ever near.
The child-like joys I loved the most,
Once held in my young heart
Have passed first to my children
And then to a “grander” part.
I once had worried Jesus
Might resent my gifts received
But I learned they’re all from Him
Since in Him I believed.
I wouldn’t want to miss it
The family gathered ‘round.
The carols sung by many voices
What a sweet angelic sound!
I’ve learned to wait for Christmas
And miss it when it’s gone.
But I’m glad the Christ of Christmas
Is with me all year long.
