I made a Christmas wish for me and you

A wish that all wishes really could come true

Our lives are much like falling snowflakes

Coming together -- for that is what it really takes

Joy to the World!

A Christmas wish for those who wait and see

Their true present isn't found under the tree

It's deep within the heart and soul

As being loved is our ultimate goal

O Come, All Ye Faithful

In those times we can't see eye to eye

Together, let us look up to the open sky

For if we stop and listen really close

Our answers will be in the heavenly host

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Parents, please keep the burden upon your backs

So your children won't fall through the cracks.

That moms will be moms and dads will be dads

And being a family won' just be one of our fads

Please Come Home For Christmas

That monsters who creep around our homes at night

Really are imaginary and not a family fight

That our words be songs of faith and belief

Not harsh voices that can steal like a thief

Silent Night

That we all make it our job to look and find

Shelter and food for all mankind

We'll share our resources with those that need

Isn't that part of our Christmas creed?

God Rest You Merry Gentlemen

Family and friends may we hold them tight

Never letting their love out of our sight

Help us to remember the true reason

For getting together this holiday season

Away in a Manger

In the manger a baby is born

Shout, dance and blow your horn

Is this the one that will set us free

Help us stand tall as we bow on our knee

What Child Is This?

I do wish for this and so much more

Never does it matter if we are rich or poor

For our treasures lie deep within

As we have been forgiven for our sin

O Holy Night

Wish hard that every day could be

Just like those presents under your tree

Days that bring laughter, dance and song

As this love we've been given is never wrong

Go, Tell it on the Mountain

This may be only a poem that rhymes

With a wish for you and me in these times

That our lives be filled with Christmas cheer

Not just today, but every day, every year

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
