May the people rejoice at the birth of the King,And let us pray while the Church bells ring:
May we remember to pray for the sick and the sad
For our caring Mum and hard-working Dad,
For all people in need of food without delay
And for those without homes on this sunny day.
May knives be used for cutting meat
And guns be thrown away.
Let us hope for the earth to stay green
And slowly get colder for a winter scene.
