  • Not Only Christmas Day

    Lord, this is my prayer
    Not only on Christmas Day
    But until I see You face to face
    May I live my life this way:

    Just like the baby Jesus
    I ever hope to be,
    Resting in Your loving arms
    Trusting in Your sovereignty.

    And like the growing Christ child
    In wisdom daily learning,
    May I ever seek to know You
    With my mind and spirit yearning.

    Like the Son so faithful
    Let me follow in Your light,
    Meek and bold, humble and strong
    Not afraid to face the night.

    Nor cowardly to suffer
    And stand for truth alone,
    Knowing that Your kingdom
    Awaits my going home.

    Not afraid to sacrifice
    Though great may be the cost,
    Mindful how You rescued me
    From broken-hearted loss.

    Like my risen Savior
    The babe, the child, the Son,
    May my life forever speak
    Of who You are and all You've done.

    So while this world rejoices
    And celebrates Your birth,
    I treasure You, the greatest gift
    Unequaled in Your worth.

    I long to hear the same words
    That welcomed home Your Son,
    "Come, good and faithful servant,"
    Your Master says, "Well done."

    And may heaven welcome others
    Who will join with me in praise
    Because I lived for Jesus Christ
    Not only Christmas Day
