"I Celebrate the Day"

(by Relient K)

"And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know
How much You've touched my life because
Here is where You're finding me
In the exact same place as New Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

Chorus:
And the first time
That You opened Your eyes
Did You realize that You would be my Savior?
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever?
(Repeat)

And so this Christmas I'll compare
The things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
And the hope that what You give
That you were born so I might really live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

Chorus

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life..."

It's almost Christmas!! I'm excited to see the kids open their presents, and I look forward to seeing family. But it's so easy to get distracted by everything that the world has made Christmas out to be. I pray that we can help the kids to not lose sight of the real reason for Christmas. We think more about the gifts under the tree than the gift of eternal life. It's amazing to think that Jesus was born to die, in order to save my life.
