Goodwill and Peace
As the wintry season dawns
To Yuletide we are drawn
Nativity Holy and sacred cribs
Silent nights as enigmatic gifts.
Santa with his sleigh rebounds
Reindeers and tinkling sounds
Sledging across hills and plains
Keeping his promise to little ones
Xmas trees and spirits so jolly
Bright balls and bells tucked in Holly
Shining stars in regal elegance stride
Radiating joy and hope far and wide.
The Lord did descend on earth this day
Swaddled warmly and in heaps of hay
The wise men and the Star of the East
Unending miles amidst a joyful treat.
Christ the Lord indeed that day was ordained
To redeem this world of misery and pain
His charmed person, his radiant glow
His mystic ways in benevolent flow.
This day we remember as Deliverance
From pain and suffering by Providence
A day to celebrate and greet mankind
With a cheery heart and a joyous mind.
