Christmas is coming

I count the days to Christmas
and I watch the evening sky.
I want to see the angels
as to Bethlehem they fly.
I’m watching for the wise men
and the royal shining star.
Please may I travel with them?
Is the stable very far?
I count the days to Christmas
as we shop and bake and clean.
The lights and tinsel sparkle,
and yet deep inside I dream
that as we tell the story
of Lord Jesus and his birth,
the things of every day will fade
as heaven comes to earth.
