Spare a Thought

 

Decorations in house and street,

inducing thoughts of festive treat.

Christmas cards with usual rhymes

bring usual greetings for auld lange syne.

 

But spare a thought for Jesus.

 

Food collected, drinks in store,

there's never room for any more.

Fun and games to make you jolly,

crackers, parties, balloons and holly.

 

But spare a thought for Jesus.

 

Wrapping paper, a secret thought,

hiding away the gifts you've bought.

Singing carols, they're pleasant on ear

and they sound right for this time of year.

 

But spare a thought for Jesus.

 

Exciting times on Christmas morn,

opening presents from early dawn.

Stockings and dear old Santa Clause,

Christmas pudding and brandy sauce.

 

But spare a thought for Jesus

 

Scattered toys throughout the day,

awaiting time for new owner's play.

Fairy lights on Christmas trees

and families sharing memories.

 

But spare a thought for Jesus, spare a thought.
