Christmas Hope

As we reflect on this dark year

It’s hard to find that Christmas cheer

Stress and grief have filled our minds

A year so heavy for mankind

Sacrifices great and real
It’s hard to know just how to feel
But this December orbs aligned
A Christmas star, a heavenly shine

A silver lining we might see

As we light our Christmas tree
Love is not found in a toy
It’s love itself that brings true joy

Our wish for you these darkest days

That love will find you through the haze
Our wish for all at this year’s end
Peace on Earth, good will to men
