OBSERVING CHRISTMAS

We want to hold on to the old customs and traditions because they strengthen our family ties, bind us to our friends, make us one with all mankind for whom the child was born, and bring us back again to the God who gave His only begotten Son,, that “whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  So we will not “spend” Christmas nor “observe” Christmas.  We will “keep” Christmas — keep it as it is in all the loveliness of its ancient traditions.  May we keep it in our hearts, that we may be kept in its hope. – Peter Marshal

” In school we made a special effort to teach our students the meaning of  Christmas and and give them lessons in it’s proper observance.  Not long ago some of our young men spent a holiday in rebuilding a cabin for a helpless coloured woman who is about seventy-five years old.  At another time I remember that I made it known in chapel, one night, that a very poor student was suffering from cold because he needed a coat.  The next morning two coats were sent to my office for him.” – Booker T. Washington

JOY TO THE WORLD by Isaac Watts, 1707

Joy to the World, the Lord is come, Let earth receive her King; Let every heart, prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven and Heaven, and nature sing!

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns, let men their songs employ; While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, Repeat, the sounding joy!

He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove, the glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love, And wonders, and wonders, of His Love.
