Trees and lights and bells and carols; Bright-wrapped packages, piled high; Winter's sharp blow joins the heralds: "Christmas-time is nigh!"
Mailmen hurry; shoppers scurry; Time is fleeing - Oh! So fast! Parties gather, loud and merry, Grander than in Christmas' past.
Pause a moment to remember That a Savior's simple birth Still stirs angel wings in susur' - "Peace to men; good will on earth!"
Now the Father's hands that molded The first Adam in the clay, Gently 'round a manger folded, Cradle a Baby in the hay.
So the Greatest Gift extended, Gift of love and peace to all, "God's great love to man descended" Calls us to a manger stall.©1990 David Needham
