Following is a sample from the script...

The last verses for this script are as follows...

I remember a story

I know it was true

I think it’s what’s missing

I’ll share it with you


I found this old book

Not opened for years

And what I’ve read here

Has reduced me to tears


We’ve got it all wrong

We’ve made a mistake

Christmas is much more

Than presents and cake!”


They read further on

And then they read more

And their eyes were opened

They finally saw


That the reason for Christmas

Is Jesus alone

His birth in a manger

A stable His home


For He came to this world

To bring it great joy

The future of all

Would rest on this boy


As a man He would lay down

His life for us all

But it started that Christmas

In a Bethlehem stall


So as you gather together

This Christmas eve

Don’t forget to accept

The one gift that is free
