Dear God, one day is far too short
To mark the birthday of your Son.
The sounds of bells and carols fade,
And even the tallest tapers run
Their lovely course of light. The tree
Has had its hour, and time is swift.
Is Christmas Day now ended? No,
It lasts as long as spirits lift
In joy at mention of His name
Or kindness rules because of Him,
As long as words spread warmth or smiles
Bring sun to places shadow-dim.
Dear God, we hold His birthday dear;
It lives in hearts through all the year!
