A  Christmas Pastoral
 
 
I wake to  hear the angels'  song .
My heart is touched by something strange .
My friends all wake. We plod  along
to trace  the sound  beyond   the  range.
White  snow lies deep upon the ground
In yonder  manger,  Christ is  found. 
 
The star the star ! It's fair like morn  !
Awake ! Awake ! A child is born !
 
No bed for Jesus in the inn,
He lies  on straw among the sheep ,
There's drops of milk on  his wee  chin.
He   breathes contentment in his sleep.       
He's  christ the  child ! He looks at me !
A look of love for me and thee!
 
The star the star ! It's fair like morn !
Awake ! Awake ! A child is born !

Christmas Presents : A Pastoral


It's time to light our Christmas tree
and hang presents for all at home.
We count the parcels, one, two , three
a doll, a bell, a key-chain comb.
What shall we give to mum and dad ?
What shall we give to Grace and Brad ?

We give them lots and lots of love,
as much as silver stars above!


Go spread to each the love of God
It's time for charity and cheer.
Let the babe of Bethlehem nod
at you this season of the year.
He spreads good news to rich and poor !
Go knock upon the stable door !


We give them lots and lots of love !
As much as silver stars above !
