There will always be a Christmas in the hearts of little children -
And, since childhood is eternal, we are all but children grown,
Thrilling to the Manger story and the journey of the Wise Men,
Mindful that the God of stars is keeping watch above His own.
There will always be a Christmas - and, pray soon, the fruits of Christmas:
Peace on Earth - Good-will - and Freedom - and the dignity of man;
Laughter of all little children; faith and worship; joyous giving;
All that men have lived and died for since our Christmases began.
