Christmas Day....

       "I am bringing you good news of great Joy for all the people...."
                                                                         Luke 2:10

                                                 EVERYWHERE, EVERYWHERE,
                                                        CHRISTMAS TONIGHT

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Chsitams in lands of the palm tree and vine,
Christmas where snow peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where cornfields lie sunny and bright,
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

For the Christ Child who comes is the Master of all,
No palace too great and no cottage too small;
The angels who welcome Him sing from the height,
"In the city of David, a King in his might."
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!

Then let every heart keep its Christmas within,
Christ's pity for sorrow, Christ's hatred for sin,
Christ's care for the weakest, Christ's courage for right,
Christ's dread of the darkness, Christ's love for the light,
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!

                                                                   Phillips Brooks

  6. This is very strange! I left a comment earlier this morning, and it seems to be gone now.... We were having some connection problems, and I had to sign in before it would take the comment, but it is not here anyway. Well, it was nothing major, just a wish for you to have a truly blessed Christmas and a day of relaxation. Hope your Thursday will be even more relaxing! :-)

  7. Nellie, I love your quotes for both Christmas Eve and Day - very, very nice. Merry Christmas!
