Christmas is a song of joy and love,
However it is sung, however rendered,
Rich source of childhood pleasures that will prove
In later life a lesson long remembered.
So may you share the joys of Christmas time,
Though still a child, by giving more and more,
Making child and adult combine
As slowly, slowly you approach that door,
Surer of what giving might be for.
