Okay At Christmas - Poem by Clarence Prince

First let me say merry Christmas
Hope you haven't yet spent up to the max
For again this is such a time of the year
When you should take a little more care
And for Christ's sake do what's fair
Prepare yourself to do a little charity
Then let those with much help others fairly
Even if you can't afford to do a great lot
The Saviour sees and knows what you've got
Just do your best He will do the rest
Do the work of love you'll be blessed
He whose birthday you're hoping to celebrate
Doubtless you guess He requires no less
Than for everyone to have a merry Christmas
Join me with a cheer for who takes care
To help the less fortunate share a Christmas
Happy be your spirit all along the way
The Child who was born upon this day
He reigns, our Saviour Christ the Lord
Three cheers to all for a merry Christmas
Let everyone give thanks for Christ the Lord
The beloved Son of God came to us at last
Who went on the cross and paid the cost
He did it to stop man from getting lost
Lift your hands and say merry Christmas.

    though i'm no longer a believer in God/Jesus (but i DO have an open mind; NO! i did NOT say an empty mind) i DO still believe in the saying do unto others as you would have them do unto you. and for those who do not have a lot to share, there must be something you can share. even if it is only a dollar here and a dollar there, a smile here and a wave there.

    too bad that religious people are not as charitable as Jesus (supposedly, and 'maybe') did say we should be.

    a fine poem. and though it is more like the Halloween season approaching, as witnessed in part by a couple of the October a showcase for PH poets poems, it is always the right season fro charity. amen to that!

    very nicely worded and i especially enjoyed the rhymes. now where is my christmas candy cane! ?

    this poem shall go into my ever-bulging MyPoemList, and it shall also go into October's showcase.

    thanks, Clarence. and have a blessed Halloween, if such a thing is possible. bri :)

    Prepare yourself to do a little charity
    Then let those with much help others fairly
    Even if you can't afford to do a great lot
    The Saviour sees and knows what you've got

    and

    Join me with a cheer for who takes care
    To help the less fortunate share a Christmas
