Merry Christmas

Silent night
Holy night
Throngs of people crowded the way;
The soldiers were pushy and rude.
The journey had ended in Bethlehem,
But there was no where to sleep, no food.
All is calm
All is bright
Poor Mary was tired and heavy with child,
And Joseph was weary with worry.
"Please." he begged of an innkeeper there,
"We need a quiet place in a hurry."
Round yon Virgin,
Mother and child
Holy infant,
So tender and mild
Born in a stable warmed by oxen and sheep,
Then laid in a manger close by,
A babe, Love Incarnate, The King of Kings,
The hope of a world that draws nigh.
Sleep in Heavenly peace.

I wish you all the blessings and wonders of this Holy season......
