CHRISTMAS READY

CHRISTMAS READY

What is it–two more weeks?

To finish the list that one seeks…

But who seeks Christ

In the Stable of Lights,

Instead of a riotous feast?

Abandoned Christian rites,

By those seeking other sights…

Has the Babe gone pagan,

Replaced by a flagon

Of mead…duly spiced?

Those of us with faith,

Can we say our souls are safe…

Little preparation

Receiving salvation,

From the One virgin gestation?

Two weeks to receive our King

Let Heaven and earth ring…

In the hearts of His people

Under every steeple,

And  whomever in which Christ’s joy might spring!

–Jonathan Caswell
