Christmas Joy All Around
A season of love, a season of joy
A reason to be good for every girl and boy
A time when all hatred's dissolved and affection's spread
Yes, it's Yuletide ahead !
Shiny lights and decor galore
Cakes, wines, chocolates and more
Our ever aging Santa busy with his elves
delivering presents to the rich and the poor!
In some parts its pleasant while in some it snows
but the spirit of Christmas is the same all around
A celebration bringing everyone together
whether you are white, black or brown.
Did you know the Red symbolizes our Saviour's sacrifice
and then Green, the tree, shows everlasting Light and Life?
The beautiful Star in every hut or edifice ...
is a Heavenly sign of a prophecy fulfilled - a shining Hope for mankind.
The Bells guide lost sheep back to the fold
The Candy cane typifies the staff a shepherd would hold
The Gift bow epitomizing the unity in true spirit
While the Candle mirrors our gratitude untold
And finally the Wreath, a symbol of an eternal love
between us unworthy humans and the Holy Lord above
The addition of the decorative crib
retelling the tale of His birth
How miraculous, for Him to visit us this way on earth
This in totality summarizes Christmas
A time for humility, forgiveness and grace
So celebrate the true meaning of this wonderful season
with your neighbour - irrespective of colour or race.
