Where’s the Line to See Jesus?

While at the mall a number of years ago, a mother with her four year old nephew, Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler Christmas is the holiday Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, “where’s the line to see Jesus”?

From this question came the inspirational song, Where’s the Line to See Jesus, the lyrics of which were written by Steve and Christ Loesch. It is sung by Becky Kelley at tinyurl.com/2df55zp

Christmas time was approaching
Snow was 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?

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
Thought I heard him sing

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?
Where’s the line?
Where’s the line for the Lord?

  1. People stand in boring lines
    for Santa at each crowded mall,
    for we’re in avaricious times
    and want to have it all.
    There is a line to see the Lord,
    but it isn’t very long.
    Some think it’s what they can’t afford,
    and some feel they don’t belong.
    And some don’t want to give it up,
    the life of bright impatient bling,
    to trade it for a holy cup,
    then have to drink the thing.
    “Winner dies with most toys”, it’s said,
    but most or not, they’re still dead.
