Verse 1:

It's not just about the manger
Where the baby lay
It's not all about the angels
Who sang for him that day

It's not just about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It's not all about the wisemen
Who travelled from afar

Chorus:
It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday

It's about the cross
It's about the cross

Verse 2:

It's not just about the presents
Underneath the tree
It's not all about the feeling
That the season brings to me

It's not just about coming home
To be with those you love
It's not all about the beauty
In the snow I'm dreaming of

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

The beginning of the story is wonderful and great
But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree
It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been me

It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
So that you and I could have real life someday

It's about the cross
It's about the cross

    The cross was just a wooden beam,its what christ did on the cross that saved us when he said it is finished and gave up the ghost we were forgiven and he was no longer limited and now has full power in his children. It was the blood he shed, so when i think of the cross i get all teary because i think of the beating jesus took just for me and his life he gave just for me so i could live. I am so glad he lives today in my heart and some day i will be with him for ever more because he paid the price for my soul at calvary. That's what i think about the cross it brought me salvation and life for ever more

    Christmas is about how jesus died on the cross and saved us from out sins (and he still does). He died so we could have a wonderful and real life today. We celebrate christmas because of this
