Where’s the line to see Jesus?

Becky Kelly, a young Christian country artist has recorded a song with a seasonal message, one that seems particularly apt in these final days of preparation for the Christmas festivities.

Where’s the Line to See Jesus? is a recent release inspired by Becky’s 4-year-old nephew, Spencer. It was whilst observing the long queue to see Santa at a shopping centre, that the little lad asked innocently, “Where is the line to see Jesus?”

The disarming frankness of the child’s question moved Becky’s dad to write the lyrics, which she then set to music and recorded.

Becky wrote on her website:

Out of the mouths of babes come profound truths that many adults cannot understand. Hopefully Spencer’s observation will cause people all over to reflect on the love of Jesus, and that one day we will all stand in line to see Him. We are most thankful to our Heavenly Father to have this chance to share our music with you.

Now sit back and enjoy:

    I have a hearing impediment and would love to read the words and then have the song played as well. Can you help?

    Pat, here are the lyrics for the song. I wish you a very happy Christmas.

    Where’s The Line To See Jesus?

    Christmas time was approaching, the snow is starting to fall,
    Shoppers choosing their presents, people filling the mall,
    Children waiting for Santa with excitement and glee.
    A little boy tugged my sweater, looked up and asked me,

    Where’s the line to see Jesus? Is He here at the store?
    If Christmas time is His birthday, why don’t we see Him more?
    Where’s the line to see Jesus? He was born for me.
    Santa Claus brought me presents, but Christ gave His life for me.

    As I stood in amazement at this message profound,
    I looked down to thank him, he was no where around.
    The little boy at the mall might as well have had wings
    As the tears filled my eyes, I thought I heard him say,

    Where’s the line to see Jesus? Is He here at the store?
    If Christmas time is His birthday, why don’t we see Him more?
    Where’s the line to see Jesus? He was born for me.
    Santa Claus brought me presents, but Christ gave His life for me.

    In the blink of an eye, at the sound of His trump,
    We’ll all stand in line at His throne.
    Every knee shall bow down, every tongue will confess,
    That Jesus Christ is Lord.

    Where’s the line to see Jesus? Is He here at the store?
    If Christmas time is His birthday, why don’t we see Him more?
    Where’s the line to see Jesus? He was born for me.
    Santa Claus brought me presents, but Christ gave His life for me.
