Best Poem of Julia Ann Moore

Christmas

Hail the coming holiday,
With a hearty joyous feast,
And drive away sorrow, friends,
For a day or two at least;
Lay all business cares aside,
And make the world resound,
With music and festivals
Throughout our merry town.

May every person in our land

And welcome in Christ's birthday,
With everlasting praise;
Praise Him who died upon the cross,

The great Redeemer, Christ our lord,
That dwells beyond the grave.

We should meet in reverence,
And God's commands obey,
And make each other...
