It comes every year and will go on forever.
And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes
and the customs.
Those humble, everyday things a mother clings
to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces
of her heart."
~ Marjorie Holmes, American writer ~

Composed by Henry W. Longfellow, 1864

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar Carols play
And wide and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth good will to man

I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rung so long the unbroken song
Of peace on earth good will to man

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and marks the song
Of peace on earth good will to man

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor does he sleep
The wrong shall fail the right prevail
With peace on earth good will to man
With peace on earth good will to man
