LET CHRISTMAS COME

LET CHRISTMAS COME
A Poem for Christmas Day 2015Christmas tree in the fog

Let Christmas come for all and one,
let joy ascend and ring,
let sorrows cease and hopes increase,
let love descend and sing.

Let Joseph love what Mary loves
as love supreme is made.
This natal feast, and not the least,
is roughly, gently laid.

Let wise ones sway and trav’lers stay
to seek out what was sealed.
Let light prevail and all avail
to guide our souls to kneel.

Let people say what prophets bade
and say what has been said,
that horrors all and hate enthralled
are kindly slowed and stayed.

Let common things and daily things
be front and center now,
and daylight shine and moonlight shine
to show the way to how.

Let Christmas come for all and one,
let joy ascend and ring,
let sorrows cease and hopes increase,
let love descend and sing.

– Bob Hill
