A Christmas Poem


Christmas oh Christmas
Your name is very famous
Christ's birth makes it precious
It's time we are getting ready to focus
On buying our gifts right away
We'll surely avoid the stores chaos
Seeing as Christmas is getting so near
We'll have to move up a gear
With all those stringing-up again
Of the things which will proclaim
Christmas is coming on its way
Prepare yourself to spend part day
Set up those little Christmas lights
That makes the seasons bright
Knowing all throughout the day
We'll play some Christmas songs
Children will play with their toys
The sorts that ever brings them joy
For all that and more
Just say with me on the day
If you're passing my way
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
A merry Christmas to you
It was on this date a Child was born
The Saviour who would thereafter bear
Upon His head a crown of thorns
While some just watched and jeered
Some others looked on with tears
Christ who was born prior to day dawn
He was crucified and died before nightfall
He answered His call, He took the fall
With a loud voice He cried it's finished
Human redemption was fully assured
Christ brought to the world light and life
Through Him we can have eternal-life
He is a light to lighten the Gentiles
He is the glory of all Israelites
For all that and more
Just say with me now
Like you are taking a vow
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
A merry Christmas to you
Christmas oh Christmas
Your name is very famous
Christ's birth makes it precious.

Amen! ! ! ! (St Luke 2: 32)

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
