Spirit of Christmas
By BYRON WILLIAMS
Christmas, the blrth-tlme of Jesus,
Comet with its holly again
Would that the world's acceptation
Guaranteed peace to all men!
Chrittmae, the time to be merry!
Chrletmae, when garlands are
Why do we fall back to furrows
After the bells havs been rung?,
Chrletmas, the day of unbendlngl
Christmas, when hunger Is fed
Why must it ever go wanting,
Wasting and crying for bread?
Christmas, bedlademed season!
Christmas, then sorrow and fear!
8urely the Christ-child who blessed us
Meant it to last all the year!
What Is the spirit that drives us
Back to our hearthstones that glow,
Leaving the heart-sick to perish
Out in the cold and the snow?
Let the glad paene of plenty
Ring and reverberate long '
Catch up humanity's chorus,
Gladsome and great be the song!
Sing It forever and ever,
Throughout the aeons of Timet'
Carol It ever and always,
Symphony blest and sublime!
Twine with the mistletoe branches
Love for the fallen and sad!
Uplift with sanctified kindness
Those who are lowly and bad!
Live every day on the dial
Just as God wishes we might!
Making our Christmas eternal,
Paving our way to the light!
