A Christmas Seed


What holds the world together?
What keeps the mind at ease?
For some, it's fun and pleasure,
They are easiest to please.

They think nothing of tomorrow,
It's only for the moment they live;
They look the other way from sorrow,
They just receive, instead of give.

God holds my world together,
God keeps my mind at ease;
It makes no matter what the weather,
It's His will I want to please.

Now the Spirit's all around us,
Especially at this time of year;
I wish we were all on the same bus,
Of His goodwill and friendly cheer.

Let us pray for all that worry,
Let us pray for those in need;
Let's us part from all the hurry,
And plant a Christmas seed.

A seed to sprout across this land,
A seed to grow and live in joy;
A seed of His, sweet, precious band,
A seed of Angels in His employ.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
