Where’s the Line to See Jesus?

Found this one on Youtube the other day. It is one of those that songs that really makes you think.

Where’s the Line to See Jesus

Preformed by Beck Kelly
Song and Lyrics by Steve Haupt & Chris Loesch

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 m
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

(Repeat Chorus)

Where’s the line?
Where’s the line?

Where’s the line for the Lord?

Story behind the song

While at the mall a couple of years ago, my (Kelly’s) then four-year old nephew, Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, “where’s the line to see Jesus”? My sister (Kelly’s) mentioned this to my dad (Kelly’s), who immediately became inspired and jotted words down to a song in just a few minutes. After putting music to the words, and doing a quick recording at home, he received a great response from friends. Read more
