Representative Text

1 While stars of Christmas shine, lighting the skies,
Let only loving looks beam from our eyes.

For at this blessed time, long, long ago,
Christ Jesus came, who lived God’s love to show.

2 While bells of Christmas ring, joyous and clear,
Speak only happy words, all love and cheer. [Refrain]

3 Give only loving gifts, and in love take,
Gladden the poor and sad for love’s dear sake. [Refrain]
