Silver Bells and sparkling lights

Christmas Carols on winter nights

Houses made of Gingerbread

Children dressed in green and red


Pretty wrappings and colored bows

Fields and meadows of pure white snow

Warm woolen mittens pinned to my coat

Hot cups of coco with marshmallows afloat


Flying angels and dancing elves

Toys lined up on Santa’s shelves

All ready to go on Christmas Eve

To all of those who still Believe


Reindeer antlers to guide the way

A Jolly Old St. Nick in a shiny red sleigh

Dark blue nights and the Bethlehem Star

For Three Wise Men who have traveled far


Loving hearts and gentle hands

Helping those in need of a caring friend

Baskets and bundles left at the door

Hustles and bustles across the floor


Candy canes and Christmas trees

A round of grace and thanks upon our knees

A candle lit for Peace on Earth

Celebrating the Blessed Christ Child’s birth


All of these things are to me

What Christmas is and should always be

Sprinkled with the Joy, Faith and Love

Of Friends and Family and God Above
