Christmas Quest

 

Oh where can I find him?

It’s now Christmas Day.

It seems that we’ve lost him

Somewhere on the way.

 

I thought we might find him

At shops in the mall,

Or at Christmas parties,

But few signs at all.

 

I can’t see him hiding

There under the tree,

Amongst all the gifts

For my family and me!

 

When we sang all the carols

We called out his name,

But soon we forgot

Why it was that he came:

 

For he lived here among us

To teach and to guide

And to pay for our wrongs

Through the death that he died.

 

This Jesus now lives,

So the gospels declare.

Young and old who still seek him

Find this Saviour’s right there.
