His Name Is 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 that list about.
And though I've had to drop some names of folks I like a lot,
My Lord must have the most because His name is at the top!
