You Are On My List
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
Every year I make a list,
Of people, I plan to send,
A Christmas card of greetings,
A list of family and friends.
I will share all our good,
Of the past year.
And send many greetings,
Of happy holidays with great cheer.
Those I choose to send to,
Are those who always care.
They're good and loving people,
With whom I love to share.
And you are on my list,
Because you are one of those people that are the best.
This card is sent with love and wishes for a Merry Christmas,
And a New Year that is very blessed.
From morning till night -
That's what you're wished
At this time of good cheer,
Along with life's best
Through a wonderful year!
Poet: Grinnell Willis
In olden time sweet songs were sung,
Of "Peace on Earth," to all good will.
And chimes at Christmas-time were rung.
To mind men that Love blessed them still.
And so to-day, Love sways our hearts
To generous impulse, far and wide.
And every gift we send imparts
The Love of God at Christmas-tide.
Blessings To You
Poet: Kate Summers
Many blessings are sent to you
For a Christmas and Happy New Year too.
May blessings come to you the day
And God be with you in every way.
Just like the love that came that night
God gave us a glorious light
May peace fill your heart
And the year have a wonderful start.
Spirit Of Christmas
Poet: Henry VanDyke
I am thinking of you today because it is Christmas,
And I wish you happiness.
And tomorrow, because it will be the day after Christmas,
I shall wish you happiness
And soon clear through the year.
I may not be able to tell you about it every day,
Because I may be far away;
Or because both of us may be very busy.
But it makes no difference.
The thought and the wish
Will be here just the same.
Whatever joy or success comes to you
Will make me glad.
Without pretense, and in plain words,
Goodwill to you is what I mean,
in the Spirit of Christmas.
Poet: Victoria L. Adenson
May you have lots of Christmas joy
Girls and boys with lots of toys
Family celebrations too
Love surrounding you through and through
Be thankful for the birth
Of Jesus a gift to all on earth
Count your blessings everyone
But mostly for the birth of the Son.
Poet: C. Jelf -Sharp
Of Christmas past, let us remember now
Only the smiles, forgetting all the tears.
Only the hopes, forgetting all the fears!
Life's way is all too long, that we should bow
Beneath the ancient burdens of dead years.
Of Christmas in the future, let us speak
Only with courage, looking for the best!
Only with hope, leaving to faith the rest!
Life's day is all too short, that we should seek
To dim its brightness at our own behest.
And in the present Christmas, let us give
All help, from care the suffering to release
All zeal, to share our happiness and peace!
For life is long enough for love to live.
And short enough for bitterness to cease.
Joy, Hope & Peace
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020
Joy, peace, hope - The words of Christmas
Having these are, oh so precious.
May this Christmas card bring
The feeling of these three things.
May the feeling of joy fill your day
May peace be with you and always stay
May hope fill your heart this holiday
May you feel the love of Jesus this Christmas Day.
Ready To Keep Christmas
Poet: Henry VanDyke
Are you willing -
To stoop down and consider the needs
And desires of little children;
To remember the weaknesses and loneliness
Of people who are growing old;
To stop asking how much your friends love you,
And to ask yourself if you love them enough;
To bear in mind the things that other people
Have to bear on their hearts;
To trim your lamp so that it will give more light and less smoke,
And to carry it in front so that your shadow will fall behind you;
To make a grave for your ugly thoughts and
A garden for your kindly feelings, with the gate open?
Are you willing to do these things for a day?
Then you are ready to keep Christmas!
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
Old friend o'mine, it's Christmas Day
An' I am thinkin' of you
An' hopin' that no patch of gray
Will hide the blue above you.
An' if I had the power to do
The many things I yearn to,
With joy I'd be surrounding you,
And always when your work is through
There'd be a kiss to turn to.
You'd never know a single care
To cause a minute's worry,
There'd be no road you couldn't fare.
An' do it in a hurry.
I'd clip the thorns from every rose
You get your fingers on to;
An' warm would be each breeze that blows,
An' each night rare with sweet repose.
Could I do what I want to.
An' when you sigh for coins of gold,
I'd fill your purse with money,
An' make each pathway where you strolled
A bright one an' a sunny.
To friend, I'd change each foe to you,
The hand upraised to strike, to
One stretched out in friendship true
I'd turn, if this old heart could do
The things 'twould really like to.
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
I do not care to wait until the hand of death has smoothed your brow
Before I say what's in my heart, I'd rather tell it to you now.
I'd rather say: ''How glad I am to know your cheery voice and smile,"
Than stand and say "how glad I was" in some grief-stricken after-while.
I'd rather shout: ''how good you are I" than sniffle out: "how good was he!"
And so I take this Christmas Day to say you have a friend in me.
And so I take this Christmas Day to wish you everything that's fine,
A cloudless sky for every day, a path where roses bloom and twine;
May sorrow never find your door, but if it shall and leave you dumb,
May to your wounds of grief the balm of consolation quickly come.
May all the best of life be yours, and may, no matter where you roam,
Good luck and gladness go with you, and smiling, bring you safely home.
If wishing only banished care you'd never more have cause to sigh.
If wishing drove the clouds away henceforth the blue would fill your sky.
The pink of health would bloom upon the cheeks of those you love for aye.
And every day God gives to you would be a merry Christmas Day.
I'd wish you everything that's good, I'd wish you everything that's fine,
And then I'd still be in your debt, oh good and faithful friend of mine.
A Christmas Greeting
A Merry Christmas morning
To each and every one!
The rose has kissed the dawning,
And the gold is in the sun.
And may the Christmas splendor
A joyous greeting bear,
Of love that's true and tender
And faith that's sweet and fair.
Bright Be The Day
Poet: J. S. Ogilvie
O bright be the day
Sweet echoes resounding,
Love lighting the way
And warm hearts surrounding.
May the breath of His peace
In thy spirit remain,
Till Christmas revisits
The round world again.
Poet: Mary C, Law
May I say to you this morning,
In the good old-fashioned way,
"Merry Christmas, dear, God bless you!"
Other things one well might say;
But I like the plain old phrasing
For this day of all the year
"Merry Christmas, dear, God bless you
With His best of Christmas cheer."
The Day Christ Was Born
Poet: E. Norman Gunnison
This is the day that Christ was born,
The day that saw a Saviour’s birth;
Rise, happy light, immortal morn,
Make glad the desert spots of earth!
No monarch crowned with diadem,
He cometh not a king to reign,
But Israel’s star, and Judea’s gem,
His dawning glads the earth again.
He offers not an earthly prize,
Though kingdoms are his own to give,
But in his glad, immortal eyes
The blind shall see, the dead shall live.
His ways are not as ways of ours;
His is the dust, the toil, the heat,
And in the pathways strewn with flowers
He knows the thorns which pierce our feet.
Gathered beside the Christmas hearth,
By the sweet shining of thy grace
Let us behold the lost of earth
As we shall some day see thy face.
And clinging closer to the cross
Which thou hast borne, through shame and scorn,
Let us grow happier by loss,
On this, the day when Christ was born.
Christmas Comes Once A Year
Poet: Thomas Miller
Upon a gayer, happier scene,
Never did holly berries peer.
Or ivy throw its trailing green,
On brighter forms than there are here,
Nor Christmas in his old armchair
Smile upon lips and brows more fare
Then let us sing amid our cheer,
Old Christmas still comes once a year.
A King Was Born
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
A king was born but not as expected
By many, His life was rejected
A small baby born in a manger
From the beginning, His life was in danger.
But He followed his Father's will
And stood up to all evil.
He died upon a cross
So many would not be lost.
So as this Christmas season arrives
Be thankful for the impact on our lives
We celebrate the birth of Christ
And give thanks for His sacrifice.
