Rejoice Always By Clara Barnes Costner

Christmas, coming soon

Such a special celebration

Children can hardly wait

In their eyes, anticipation

The birth of our Saviour

Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace

Remembering the shepherds

Following the star in the east

Let us rejoice always

Whether or not we assemble

We have found creative ways

To share, to remember

Loved ones that have passed

Some cannot be found

We remember their faces

Their touches, their sounds

This is the season of hope

Enhanced by faith, evidence unseen

Immanuel, God with us, Christ Child,

Born King of Kings

“Glory to God in the highest, and on

earth peace, good will toward men.”

St. Luke 2:14 KJV
