As I sit on this hillside|
It's rather cold and bleak,
But as the sun filters through
I see the creation that I seek.
I'ts Christmas time once more
And as I recollect the year,
My thoughts turn to family and friends
Whom I love so much with a tear.
It is a tear of happiness not woe
As I think how much they mean to me,
They fill my life with pleasure gained
Like the butterfly and the bee.
The beauty of my new baby grandchild
Her smile fills my heart to overflowing,
I can see love in her beautiful blue eyes
As I hold her I am absolutely glowing.
She is a gift from god this Christmas
And I am glowing with absolute pleasure,
As I look around me I hear the angels sing
Because nature is like her, a beautiful treasure.
A miracle of nature like god's creative garden
A picture of Christmas a spiritual light,
And as I sit on this hill in reflection and peace
I'm reminded that Jesus gave me this sight.
