A Visit From St Nicholas
Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government
will be upon his shoulder,
and his name will be called
"Wonderful Counseler, Mighty God.
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace"



Spirit of Christmas
Author Unknown

There's more, much more to Christmas
Than candlelight and cheer
It's the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year.
It's thoughtfulness and kindness,
It's hope reborn again.
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!

The Magic Of The Season
Clement C. Moore

He Sprang in his Sleigh,
To his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew
like the down of a thistle;
But I heard him exclaim,
ere he drove out of sight
"Happy Christmas!"
to all, and to all a
"Good-Night!"

What Can I Give Him ?
Christina Rossetti

What can I give Him?
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd,
I would bring a lamb.
If I were a Wise Man,
I would do my part.
Yet what can I give Him,
Give Him my heart.

Christmas Song
Lydia Avery Coonley Ward

Why do bells for Christmas ring?
Why do little children sing?

Once a lovely, shining star,
Seen by shepherds from a far,
Gently moved until its light
Made a manger- cradle bright.

There a darling baby lay
Pillowed soft upon the hay.
And his mother sang and smiled,
”This is Christ, the holy child.”

So the bells for Christmas ring,
So the little children sing.

Would You Follow ?
Anonymous

How many would follow the star tonight
If it shone past the Milky Way,
Leave comfortable homes and follow it still,
Over the hills and away.

How many would open their doors tonight
For a weary and shabby pair?
Make room at hearths for a Stranger-Child,
Though the Infant be wondrous fair?

How many would give of their goods tonight,
The best they possess and more,
For their faith in a star and an angel choir
And a King forevermore?

We censure the folk of a bygone time
For indifference to Mary's plight.
How many would do any better now?
Would you follow the star tonight?

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
Edmund Sears

It came upon a midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, good will to men,
from heav'ns all-gracious King."
The world in solemn stillness Lay
To hear the angels sing.

Love Came Down at Christmas
Christina Rossetti

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and angels gave the sign.

Worship we the Godhead,
Love Incarnate, Love Divine;
Worship we our Jesus,
But wherewith for sacred sign?

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign

Christmas Eve
Christina Rossetti

CHRISTMAS hath darkness
Brighter than the blazing noon,
Christmas hath a chillness
Warmer than the heat of June,
Christmas hath a beauty
Lovelier than the world can show:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.
Earth, strike up your music,
Birds that sing and bells that ring;
Heaven hath answering music
For all Angels soon to sing:
Earth, put on your whitest
Bridal robe of spotless snow:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.
