So now is come our joyful feast
Let every man be jolly
Each room with ivy leaves is dressed
And every post with holly
Let all the streets with echoes ring
Woods, and hills, and everything
Bear witness, we are merry
May you have the gladness of Christmas
which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas
which is peace;
The heart of Christmas
which is love.
Love so easily understands
What you can see is the smallest part;
You don't need Christmas in your hands
When you have Christmas in your heart.
It's Christmas time around the world,
You'll hear the Yule bells ring.
It's time for giving, time for love,
It's time for hearts to sing.
Merry Christmas to you one and all,
Goodwill and happiness,
Good health throughout the coming year,
May all your days be blessed.
Its Christmas time again
The season of renewal
Love, faith, charity
And all that is beautiful
Chimes greatly in to every heart
Beating in celebrations
Of Spirit, togetherness, and affirmation.
Holiday Joy and Holiday Cheer
Gift Giving Time is finally Here
Light Up a Candle or Put up a Wreath
Leave a Cookie for Santa On Christmas Eve
Hang Up the Stockings Put a Ball on the Tree
If it Snows Make a Snowman for all to see!
Accept my hearty good wishes
For a season of calm and cheer
May Christmas joy reign in your heart
And gladden the coming year
Here Among the Lovers I Wait Willing
Here among the lovers I wait willing,
Alone because I cannot be with you,
Pensive in the press of people filling
Promenades with passions spent and due.
Yet I am happy in my melancholy,
Vested in a love that like the night
Arrays itself in dreams that veil me wholly,
Leaving me contented till the light.
Even were I with you, I would wander
Near the things that would, but cannot be,
Taking you with me towards that inner wonder
In which we find the truest ecstasy.
Nor would our love be greater not apart,
Each with each together in the heart.
