God, Bless Us Everyone!

Tim Tebow's after touchdown prayer…
It's Christmastime in Denver town
and Tebow's brought the gifts.
He's won six straight and wowed his fans
by giving them a lift.
But Tiny Tim's been criticized
by Scrooges who defame
his prayerful after-touchdown pose
as pious or as lame.
They claim his faith is just a crutch
that proves the kid is weak.
But they can't fully understand
the goal Tim daily seeks.
There's more than end zones on his mind.
For him there's so much more.
His bottom line is pleasing Christ
not just the final score.
And so Tim prays with gratitude
just like Bob Cratchit's son.
He prays God will be glorified.
"God, bless us everyone!"
