Ode to Christmas

Eager anticipation
awaiting the day
where untold treasure
below the tree lay.
The joy in the eve
where the candles are lit
Christmas songs singing
dreams of Saint Nick.
Up before dawn
so early they rise
soon to discover
delight in their eyes.
Tis’ nothing so sweet
as their heads bowed in thanks
for toys and treasures
tricks and some pranks.
Yet not to forget
the greatest gift of all
the birth of our Savior
for one and for all.
It is by His grace
that we have hope we may hold
His love and His life
shall forever be told.
Today on this day
as we gather in love
may we take time to thank Him
for His Gifts from above.
