Be A Part

by Deb Smithgall

If you get the chance take it
Don't miss the opportunity
To be a part of the Christmas story
In a live Nativity
You can be the angel Gabriel
And reveal what God wants done
Or be the virgin Mary
The chosen mother of God's Son
You can be Mary's husband Joseph
Desperately searching for a place to stay
Or one of the many innkeepers
Who turn this weary couple away
You can be the host in Bethlehem
Who provides a stable in the night
Where Mary gives birth to a Savior
Underneath God's Holy Light
How special to be Baby Jesus
The reason for Christmas Day
This our promised Messiah
His throne a manger of hay
You can be a shepherd in the fields
Or with a choir of angels as they sing
Or you can be one of the Magi
Bearing gifts for the newborn King
But don't just put on a costume
And say a few lines you've memorized
Be a part of something bigger
Christ's story - it changes lives
