“My First Christmas in Heaven”

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,

With tiny lights, like heaven’s stars, reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,

For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,

But the sounds of music can’t compare with the choir up here.

I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,

For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me; I see the pain inside your hearts,

But I am not so far away; we really aren’t apart.

So be happy for me, dear ones. You know I hold you dear,

And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.

I send you each the memory of my undying love.

After all, “love” is a gift more precious than pure gold.

It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do,

For I can’t count the blessing or love He has for you.

So have a merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,

Remember, I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
