Some Christmas verses (used in Cards, greetings)

Though Santa gives so many gifts
he’ll always be outdone.
He gives clothes and toys and such,
but the Father gave His Son.


At Nicea St. Nicholas
slapped that naughty Arius.
Now for those with vices
the naughty list suffices.


With ox and ass and manger and hay
St. Francis recalled that holy day.
And before that Greccio scene was done
The Father again provided his Son.

Holy Child of light
illuminating with hope hearts
in these darkest days


Oh most holy Child of light
Illuminate with hope our hearts
So even on the darkest night

A Mall Santa's Prayer

As I hold each precious child
let me treat each one
with the love and care I'd show
Your most holy Son.

Christmas Eve walk
studying the stars above -
maybe one of these?

Through the clouds
a solitary star shines –
Christmas Eve

After sunrise
One star still visible –
Christmas Day

After Epiphany Santa Claus
will take a pause.
But believers have no need to fear:
He'll be back next year.

Oh, to have been a shepherd or a king
and to have heard those angels sing
or to have seen that star so bright
upon that holy Christmas night.

But Christmas transcends both time and place
and we can share in that night’s grace
when like those humble ones back then
we heed God’s call and proclaim, “Amen.”
