There’s a special joy in my heart this Christmas
As I bow down and quietly pray,
Giving thanks to our heavenly Father for his
Precious son, born on this day.
Baby Jesus, a gift to us so long ago in a village quite
Humble and small
Now centuries later we know in our hearts
He was the greatest gift of them all.
While we try every day to live by his words,
By following the Golden rule,
We celebrate his birth in a myriad of ways
Being loving in all that we do.
We go to our churches and hear choirs sing,
The children’s voices so sweet and so clear,
We listen to stories, so often retold of the magi,
The shepherds and a baby so dear
We celebrate with parties where families gather round,
Help the needy wherever we can,
Sharing our abundance, promising to live by Jesus’
Long, eternal plan.
So, we set aside this special time, when we rejoice
In this holy birth,
Our hop for all things good and true, our lasting
J prayer for peace on earth.
