The Gospel Tree

          There once was a shining Christmas tree
            Standing out where all could see.
            Its brilliance captured every eye
            And seemed to cheer each passer-by

          "The lights are so bright"' they would say
            And hesitate to walk away.
            The tree stood proud ablaze with light.
            For every light was burning bright.

          Then one bulb was heard to say
            "I am tired of burning night and day
             I think I will just go out and rest
             For I am to tired to do my best
             Besides I am so very small
             I doubt if I will be missed at all".

          Then a child lovingly touched the light.
            "Look mother this one shines so bright.
             I think of all the lights upon the tree
             This one looks the best to me".

          "Oh my goodness "said the light
             "I almost dimmed right out of sight.
             "I thought no one would care 
             If I failed to shine my share".
             With that a glorious brilliance came
             For every light had felt the same.
        
           Our Gospel like this tree
             With little lights which are you and me
             We have a space we must fill
             With love, lessons and good will.
             Let's keep our tree ablaze with light
             With testimonies burning bright
      
           For our Gospel is a living tree
             That lights our way to eternity.
