The spirit of giving, expressing gratitude and a celebration of life help to make Christmas a very special time of year.
On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity
This is the month, and this the happy morn,
Wherein the Son of Heav’n’s eternal King,
Of wedded Maid, and Virgin Mother born,
Our great redemption from above did bring;
For so the holy sages once did sing,
That he our deadly forfeit should release,
And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.
