a/n: it appears i have made a religious christmas carol. you have been warned if you do not like to read things imbued with religion.
Oh! Dear, are we all losing sight again
Of “peace on earth” and “all goodwill towards men?”
Oh! Dear, I’m afraid it’s lost its appeal,
While still being quite real.
How could a mystery so high
Seem so far when it’s so nigh
To mind and eye and heart?
I think the mystery won’t change,
That humanity has strange
Ideas of its art.
Art of creative love and awe
At the hand of God and all
The sacrifices done!
Mark ye the humbling that stayed
Our stumbling though strayed
We were from what He won.
There are so many verses and old things
That, said aloud, though true, have an empty ring.
There’s an old treasure waiting for our eyes
If we just let our old weary spirits rise!
