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
