Let Us Keep Christmas
Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing;
Whatever doubts assail us or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men;
Let us get back our childlike faith again.

Wealth may have taken wings, yet still there are
Clear windowpanes to glow with candlelight;
There are boughs for garlands and a tinsel star
To tip some little fir tree's lifted height
There is no heart too heavy or too sad
But some small gift of love and make it glad

And there are home-sweet rooms where laughter rings;
And we can sing the carols as of old
Above the eastern hills a white star swings;
There is an ancient story to be told;
There are kind words and cheering words t osay.
Let us be happy this glad Christ Child's day.
