Seeking to know Jesus and to make Him known to others

Christmas Dawn

Tinsel time, tinsel time,
Seasons greetings in a rhyme.
All the festive decorations
Ready for the celebrations.
Now the breath of dawn
Has ushered in the light on this first morn.
Lord open every eye that all might see
Your gift to us sleeping in a cradle, the cradle of new birth.
Is there a heart so cool, of praise so wary
Who can resist a babe like this,
This child of love now born to Mary?
Let he who has some reservations and ponders on this world of strife,
A revelation now receive of Jesus Christ
Who brings eternal life.
Come mind!  Come soul!  Come spirit!  Unite in joy of Truth;
And let our praises Him enthrone, whose presence is the living proof
