A Christmas Carol

Rating: 2.8
Welcome, sweet Christmas, blest be the morn
That Christ our Saviour was born!
Earth's Redeemer, to save us from all danger,
And, as the Holy Record tells, born in a manger.

Chorus --

Then ring, ring, Christmas bells,
Till your sweet music o'er the kingdom swells,
To warn the people to respect the morn
That Christ their Saviour was born.

would have been wonderful to flit from place to place, to hear this poetic hymn sung, with joy passion belief, in the time period when it was sung with joy 'The way to respect Christmas time Is not by drinking whisky or wine, But to sing praises to God on Christmas morn, The time that Jesus Christ His Son was born; ' but not sure if I should forsake the wine of Christ's first miracle on Christmas day although perhaps a better cheer is in the beer :)

I liked it until it turned into a diatribe against drinking- rather hard to get wrapped up in joy when someone is on his soap box

Lovely Christmas Carol with a great message for the entire mankind. The way to respect Christmas time Is not by drinking whisky or wine, And let the rich be kind to the poor, And think of the hardships they do endure, But to sing praises to God on Christmas morn,
