At Christmas time
Christ is born again in the power of hope
and the candle of compassion,
filling the world with love.
May the angel of birthing bless us
calling forth wonder, awe and gratitude.
May the angel of Bethlehem bless us
tickling our souls with laughter and joy
heralding hope and good tidings.
