Nobody Came To See Jesus Lyrics

Dale Mabry

I stopped by the shopping mall yesterday night
Just an hour north of Atlanta
And all of the families were gathering there
Standing in line to see Santa

With fake plastic reindeer and fake plastic snow
And Christmas songs playing too loud
I walked down a hallway just off to the side
Safely away from the crowd

To the old Christian bookstore, all quiet and still
Where its annual nativity scene is
Everyone came here to see Santa Claus
But nobody came to see Jesus

They came to see Rudolph
Shirts twenty percent off
They came to see lights
Strung up on big trees cut down in their prime
They came to eat snow cones
Upgrade to new cell phones
I guess they know how to draw a big crowd this Christmas season
Because they put all the things out that please us
But nobody came to see Jesus

My little savior asleep on the hay
With Joseph and Mary beside Him
The pride of a new mama shined in her eyes
From the sweet tears of joy she'd been crying

Instead of some reindeer, a donkey and sheep
But that didn't matter to her
Instead of some green elves, three wisest of men
With gold, silver, frankincense, myrrh

And down at my pant leg, a real little boy
Who'd wandered away from the crowd
He say, "Mister, who's that there asleep on the hay?"
I said, "Son, that's the Man that Christmas is really about,
But there's just you and me here to see this.
Because nobody came to see Jesus."

They came to see Rudolph
Shirts twenty percent off
They came to see lights
Strung up on big trees cut down in their prime
They came to eat snow cones
Upgrade to new cell phones
I guess they know how to draw a big crowd this Christmas season
Because they put all the things out that please us
But nobody came to see Jesus
