My Chains Are Gone
My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of people; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth - J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)

Glorify The KING of Kings

Such an exciting time of year,
when Santa comes to town:
once born in a lowly manger
he now flies all around;
bearing gifts for the whole wide world –
for every girl and boy;
pulled by his eight little reindeer
he brings such peace and joy.

Heaven and Shepherds look on
while we enjoy this cute ‘god’,
who down the smallest chimney slides –
a feat for human bod’!
Leaving gold, myrrh (lots of presents!),
this ‘idol’ flies away
to appear in millions of homes,
in just a single day!

It’s quite clear to see;
and so many are pleased to behold;
how Santa’s magic sleigh and deer
put Jesus Christ on hold.
Does this awesome trick that Santa’s done
gain more fans each year?
Oh yes, of those who won’t esteem
the Word of God they hear.

Well, folks, it’s not all bad.
Why, it’s not even Santa’s fault;
the myth began a goodly story –
now the lies should halt.
The account about the man
who became our Santa Clause,
is simple, moral and quite fine –
the magic is the fraud.

Where once there was (perhaps) a godly man,
who gave much to the poor,
today St. Nick’s kind charity
lays tarnished in a store; and
Satan rubs his hands in glee to watch
Christ’s Own endorse
Santa performing miracles –
without God’s help of course.

Can Santa heal a broken heart,
revive a weary mind?
Did St. Nick cure the dying
or give sight back to the blind?
Have we turned our backs on Jesus,
profaning our belief?
Do we, careless, demote God’s Son
and make all Heaven weep?

Shall we look for presents and
let man’s traditions best please us?
Then who can this day proclaim,
“I live my life for Christ Jesus”?

Confess! Repent!
Exalt and praise God’s Son before and above St. Nick.
(renounce the devil’s trick)
