A Soilders Christmas

A Soldiers Christmas.

In a foreign land on a far away shore,
A Soldier on guard asks no more.
To protect the people he was sent here for,
And give them security and much, much more.

But as he gazes at a star lit sky,
He asks himself the reason why,
Of these people so poor and thin,
Are harried, tortured and some are killed.

Not for them this Christmas day,
In this barren land so far away.
But the cry of a mother giving birth,
And a child is born on this Christmas night

Like our Savior on this fateful day,
Who had to flee and stay away,
This baby will wander the same way,
So pray for this child of heavenly grace
And Peace be upon  him for God's sake !

Peace ! 

An Irish Christmas Welcome

An Irish Christmas Welcome 

Gather around my fire dear friend, sup awhile with me,
Enjoy my Christmas fare my friend, you're as welcome as can be,
For is it not the Irish way, though stranger you maybe, 
To share our home with you my friend with hospitality ! 

The Irish way at Christmas time is fun and a joy to see,
When all the love and happiness is given quite free,
So join our happy band and sing some some songs with me, 
The fiddle and the harp will play a lively jig for thee!

So if your Feeling Lonely with nothing else to do 
Or if your all alone and really feeling blue,
Stand up straight and be quite bright,for there is nothing else to do,
But to have an Irish Christmas and join a friend or two!
