Favorite of mine

I have this poem that is framed and that I put up every year and I love it. I hope you enjoy.

A long time ago in a land far away
A child was born on a cold winter's day
He wasn't the baby you're thinking about
But another small lad, he stood short and stout
He grew up to be quite a caring old man
He loved little children, every one in the land
He found the "Good Book" and studied its pages
It was the story of Jesus passed down through the ages
His heart overflowed as he read, could it be?
A love so divine that he died just for me?
A twinkle appeared in his eye on that day
He found a road straight to Heaven and Christ was the way
As Christmas came closer, his heart filled with joy
He'd show God's people he loved them every girl, every boy

He made lots of goodies and stocked up his shelves
Yes, Santa was busy and so were his elves
He was filled with such love, that he wanted to share
So he handed out gifts to kids everywhere
Praise be to God, let the Angels sing
For this jolly old man spreads love for the King
As he steps into the chimney, he looks high above
And whispers," Happy Birthday dear Jesus, from Santa with love".
