Sing A Song Of Advent

Sing a song of advent
Open calendars and more
Light candles, shout Messiah
Expect and wait once more
For Christmas to arrive
Celebrations to begin
The arrival of the God child
To save all from their sin
To bring peace to the earth
Goodwill to humankind
So sing a song of advent
As festivities unwind

Christmas A to Z

Advent’s here let’s shout today

Bell’s ringing out so loud

Christmas candy oh so sweet

Decorations hanging proud

Elves busy in their workshops

Festive garlands all around

Gingerbread for Christmastime

Holly decking halls so sound

Ivy draped across the mantle

Jolly Santa’s nearly here

Kings following their star

Lanterns lighting with good cheer

Mistletoe for Christmas kisses

Nutcrackers breaking out brazils

Ornaments just for the season

Poinsettia on the sills

Quietness in silent night

Reindeer resting up in time

Stockings waiting to be filled up

Trees decorated so sublime

Us together as a family

Voices singing carols out

Wreaths hung upon the door

‘Xcited children shout

Yule logs glowing in the fireplace

Zeds as children try and sleep

To herald in this Christmas morning

Unwrapping blessings now to keep

Happy Christmas

 

Christmas Spirit

Not long now until Christmas comes
And with it all the fun
The warm mince pies and pure magic
And Carols to be sung
The wrapping up of gifts galore
The cooking of the cake
The glasses of mulled wine to drink
And decs to hang or make
The shouting out at pantomimes
The cards to write and send
The fun times with our families
Or with other great good friends

But spare a thought for others who
Won’t feel so Christmassy
For whom Christmas joy is absent
Devoid of company
Those lost or simply all alone
Who need a little call
A visit or a drop in for
Good tidings to befall
To maybe share a Christmas smile
To spend a little time
So that all their Christmases come
At once and so sublime!

So let’s recall Christmas Spirit
With wishes for this day
That raise a glass and make a toast
With happiness to say
We wish you all a festive time
A time of joyfulness
A time where each and every one
Will feel so very blessed
A time where all humanity
Will join with festal cheer
To wish each a Happy Christmas
A jolly good new year
