Christianity is the largest religion in the world.

Yet so many still do not believe.

And even those who claim to be Christians,

Often find it difficult to conceive.

Of a young virgin girl giving birth to one such as He.

Are you a witness to the holiness of this baby boy?

Do you believe He is the King of kings?

Are you a witness to His blessings, love, and joy?

As we wait and prepare to celebrate His birth,

And His second coming, our souls to win.

Are you a witness to His mercy and grace?

Do you believe He can wash away your sin?

My soul is a witness for all he has done for me.

I give Him all the honor, praise, and glory.

Will you be a witness for my Lord?

And sing His song and tell His story.
