Although written ten years ago, not many people have seen this.Re-discovered it just now, buried in a sub-folder. Sometimes in the "hustle-bustle" and chaos of this thing we call the "holidays" we allow the commercialism to over-power the TRUE SPIRIT of the Yuletide Season -

Every time, in EVERY Maternity ward, in EVERY place throughout the entire world, EXPECTANT people are EXPECTING a NEW BIRTH - as you wait and pray - try to visualize THAT MANGER at THAT FIRST CHRISTMAS - WONDER OF WONDERS! JOY OF JOYS! A BABE IS BORN!

EACH and EVERY ONE is a Reminder of the MIRACLE of LIFE !!!

WITHOUT CHRIST there can be NO CHRISTMAS !!! ???



Christ's Mass
by Tom Hyland
© - 12-22-98


Oh, Let us Celebrate Christ, The Child,
Born in a Manger, Meek and Mild,
Wonder of Wonders, Josephís Joy,
Maryís Babe, a Heaven-Sent Boy!


Lo, as Angelic Choirs sang -Gloria -
Shepherds watched in Euphoria.
The Magi knelt in Adoration,
Under the Star of Davidís Jubilation!


Lo, the Little Lowly Drummer Boy,
Humbly Played his Rat-tat-tat,
As All Godís Wondrous Creatures,
Side-by-Side, Silently Sat!


Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem,
How Could you Know you Would Be,
The Birth-Place of Jesus, Emmanuel,
Future Carpenter of Galilee!


Oh, Jerusalem, Godís Most Holy City,
How Could you Ever Foresee,
Golgothaís Holy Innocent, Our Lord,
Our Martyr, Nailed to the Tree!


Oh, Glorious Christ-Child,
Babe Most Highly Adored,
To Whom Godís Love,
Was So Deeply Out-Poured!

Oh, Savior, Our Life, Our Light,
On this Blessed, Happy Morn,
Happy Birthday, Sweet Jesus,
Our Promise of Eternity - Forever Re-Born!

Glad you re-posted; it's very good.

And Fleas Navidog to you, too! (I love that picture.)
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 12/20/2008
Without Christ, just a mas(s.) MESS. See it, time and again, with the need for greed ... sad. The Real Reason for the Season is Christ. So: on that note: Merry CHRISTmas, Tom.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
