Merry Christmas

When the bells of Christmas Eve ring out,
I'd like to find my way
to the little town of Bethelem
where Baby Jesus lay,
all cuddled in His mother's arms
upon sweet, fragrant hay.

As the kind animals came close
and gathered all around
to see this precious, newborn Babe
the moving star had found,
they seemed to know this innocent
would all the world astound.

Though we can't go to Bethlehem,
we still may see the star
if we look East with expectance
and keep our hearts ajar.
Somewhere in God's Heavens,
it's shining from afar.

My wish for you this Christmas is
that you may find the joy
that came to all the Earth with Him;
our blessed Christmas boy.

Joyce I was just in here gathering some material to read to my family on Christmas Eve and found this beautiful piece.  I will add it to Balladeer's recitation and you both will entertain the mass of sqirming children waiting for morning Merry Christmas to you and may you always keep the light that shines within you.  Love, Sharon

                      
Let there be peace on earth,
and let it begin with me.
