If there had never been a Christmas
or the Holy Christ child's birth,
Or the angels singing in the sky
of promised peace on earth -
What would the world be like today
with no eternal goal,
What would be the temportal body be
without a human soul?
Just what would give us courage
to push on when hope is dead.
Except the Christmas message
and the words our Father said:
"In love I send my only Son
to live and die for you,
And though the Resurrection
you will gain a new life, too."
Thank you Father, for sending Jesus into our world to show us the way and tell us of eternal glory.
