Jesus and Santa

My dear precious Jesus,
I did not mean to take your place,
I only bring toys and things

and you bring love and grace.
People give me lists of wishes

and hope that they came true;
But you hear prayers of the heart

and promise your will to do.
Children try to be good and not to cry

when I am coming to town;
But you love them unconditionally

and that love will abound.
I leave only a bag of toys

and temporary joy for a season;
But you leave a heart of love,

full of purpose and reasons.
I have a lot of believers

and what one might call fame;
But I never healed the blind

or tried to help the lame.
I have rosy cheeks and a voice full of laughter;
But no nail-scarred hands

or a promise of the hereafter.
You may find several of me in town or at a mall;
But there is only one omnipotent you,

to answer a sinner’s call.
And so, my dear precious Jesus,

I kneel here to pray;
To worship and adore you on this,

your holy birthday.
