Christmas 2014

Christmas Day arrives with all the shopping done, the tree trimmed and presents gaily wrapped. There is dinner and wine and laughter and good talk. But we must not forget just whose Day this is.

The days crept by, as well the nights
And now the day is here
The Christmas tree bedecked with lights
Gave happy Christmas cheer
And yet let’s take a moment’s pause
To think to whom we pray
It isn’t jolly Santa Claus
We celebrate today
The Christ child in the manger born
A bright star overhead
We celebrate that soft, still morn
With sacred wine and bread
This morning all the church bells rang
In joyous Christmas glow
For Christ was born while angels sang
Two thousand years ago
