Thoughts at Advent

Christmas is always special

It is a feast of love

And even if you don’t believe

In Christ or God above

Still the trains are running

Still we’re going home

To gather round the family hearth

To feel the warmth and some


Important to be together

Important to belong

To feel the Christmas cheer

To sing the Christmas song

To feel the magic in the dark

While winter cold outside

Somehow is tamed at Christmas time

And snow is wished world wide


The Lord is born at Christmas time

Light comes to the world

And every death transfigured now

The good news is heard

Christ who died did rise again

And life o’er comes the dark

And every day ‘s for living

And rising with the lark
