How do we keep Christmas holy
In our world of violence and scorn?
Commemorate the manger
Where God in flesh was born.
Meditate on Calvary’s cross
Where His sinless flesh was torn.
Celebrate the empty tomb
And resurrection morn!
Praise God for His scandalous grace Gift
With joy on Christmas morn.
Do we have cause for hope and peace,
For love and Christmas cheer
In a world gone mad it seems,
With senseless acts of terror and fear?
Only as we look to Bethlehem,
