The Spirit of Christmas

 

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS


The Spirit of Christmas

 

The spirit of Christmas is often found

In things that we can see

A street of gold and silver

A sparkling Christmas tree.

 

It’s found in quiet serenity
 Of freshly fallen snow
 In lights upon the river
A candle's gentle glow.

 

It’s found in pretty presents
 And treasures of delight
In stories told of Christmases past
 On cold and wintry nights.

 

 It’s found in Yuletide carolers
Who stand out in the street
 And spread good cheer and tidings
 To everyone they meet.

 

It’s found in bustling cities
 As choirs get up to sing
 In sleepy little villages
Where lonely church bells ring.

 

It’s found within a beggar's heart
 Who kindly takes the time
To help a cold and hungry child
 By sharing his last dime.

 

 It’s found within the prisons walls
 And temples made of stone
 It’s found within the orphanages
 And in the nursing homes.

 

It’s found within the wise men
Who brought gifts from far away
 And the eastern star that led them
 To the stable where He lay.

 

 It’s found within the Spirit
This gift from up above
     It’s filled with pure salvation
 And wrapped in His sweet love.

 

It's even found in old St. Nick

As he kneels down to pray

To Jesus blessed Redeemer

Who was born on Christmas Day.
