HIS NAME AT THE TOP - CLICK TO FIND OUT TOP OF WHAT?

A beautiful Christmas poem with an important point
This poem was shared with us a few years ago by our then pastor, Rev. Terry Leckrone.
It is as appropriate today as it was then as it will always be.
Thank you Terry. God bless and Merry Christmas to you and your family from Emanuel Church.
HIS NAME AT THE TOP
I had the nicest Christmas List,
the longest one in town,
till Daddy looked at it and said,
"you'll have to cut it down."
I knew that what he said was true,
beyond the faintest doubt,
but was amazed to hear him say,
"You've left your best friend out."
And so I scanned my list again,
and said, "Oh, that's not true!"
But Daddy said, "His name's not there,
that friend who died for you."
And then I clearly understood,
twas Jesus that he meant:
for him who should come first of all
I hadn't planned a cent!
I'd made a Christmas birthday list,
And left the Savior out!
But, oh, it didn't take me long
to change the list about.
And though I've had to drop some names
of folks I like a lot,
My Lord must have the best --- because
HIS NAME IS AT THE TOP
