Christmas Year Round
Laying aside the things of this world, intently I listen.
How silently the soul-stretching gifts of the spirit come.
Seeking for things of a better, shelters from the storms,
they come simply with the asking; Jesus paid the price.
Soft sweet whisperings enter in, sacred engrafted words
speaking volumes, sufficient for my needs for added faith.
Kindly He wipes away my tears, replacing fear with hope,
Filling my doubting heart with Christ’s pure love; charity.
