CHRISTMAS IS BEST

The birth of our Saviour, God's gift from above,
Enters our hearts and we know it as "love".
Receiving and giving - God's sustenance flows
Through all His creation, its wholeness bestows.

In the last quarter, completing each year,
Thanksgiving and Christmas bring holiday cheer.
Expressions of love - could this be the reason
We're swept up in the joy of the holiday season?

Of all celebrations, Christmas is best!
It really embraces all the rest.
May this Christmas Season and the New Year, too,
Bring their unlimited blessings to you!

PRE-SENT CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

LOVE was pre-sent to us that day
When He was sent to show the way
That we should go -- the path to take --
This useful gift, pray not forsake.

Help was pre-sent to fill, in our need,
Every thirst for guidance -- to speed
All on this journey to follow the gleam
To Peace on Earth -- everyone's dream.

Patience, pre-sent in Truth to trust
And know of deeds that we all must
Perform along the way to our goal
Of PEACE and JOY to make us feel whole.

BLESSINGS pre-sent are the best gifts of all
For kings or for shepherds or the babe in the stall
Worshipped by wisemen who followed the star
To carry their presents to Him from afar.

LIFE was pre-sent to us that day
When He was born to show us the way
Though born in a manger, substance means little
'Tis how steadfast one holds to one's committal.

Our SOURCE OF SUPPLY pre-sent before birth
For STRENGTH and COURAGE to replenish the Earth
With FAITH and COMMITMENT, with JOY and PEACE
We celebrate CHRISTMAS! All fear we release!
