Lyrics composed by John
Henderson on the 22nd of December, 2009
to the lovely melodies of 'The Sweetheart
of Sigma Chi'.
Though our world is torn and poor folks
disasters and endless strifes;
Though we long for a world where peace
bombs and not guns, nor knives ....
We must not rest, and just hope for the
bury our heads in the sand;
But rather show we can get-up and go,
Through our giving or lending a hand ....
Then Christmas ev'ry
year may soon lessen fear
And pain sore borne before;
For Christmas should be a peaceful time,
'Cos dear Mary a Jesus bore.
The fine words that Christ spoke and the
solace he gave
Are such blessings on Christians still,
That each Christmas tree should remind all
folks dearly and ever will.
Then Christmases ahead
should soon lessen dread
And all ills borne of yore;
And Christmas should be a joyous time,
'Cos Mary a Jesus bore.
The great truths that Christ spoke and the
comfort these gave
Are such blessings on true Christians
each Christmas tree should convince all that He
Loves folks dearly and ever will.
