Never Mind the Chestnuts

Shepherds startled 'round an open fire,
Angel tells them what he knows—
Praises sung by a heavenly choir—
A baby's wrapped in swaddling clothes.
Everyone must know God's favour is among us so;
Shepherds rush to see the sight.
Mary and Joseph, their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know the Saviour came today
To show his Heavenly Father's love and to obey.
This virgin mother's child came from on high
So that one day for our sins he would die.
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To everyone the whole world through,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas, for you!
