Merry Christmas to you and yours.
May this season bring you tidings of joy.
May your family be gathered around
And your face far from a frown.
May you get snow if you wish
And a loved one’s kiss.
May peace wrap you like a hug
And be sent from God above.
May you be the blessing of giving
No matter the cost of living.
May the Spirit hold your heart
That none can tear it apart.
May comparison be banished and doubt be ashamed.
And you be free from all hate, anger, and blame.
May the past not haunt you and the future be bright.
And may love always guide your sight.
Merry Christmas to you and all of your friends
May God keep you and bless you again and again.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
