We never wrote to Father Christmas

It wasn’t the thing to do

If I was to write a letter

It’s Jesus I’d send it to

Lord, restore my health

And so restore my life

Give me some patience and kindness

To weather the world and its strife


Open eyes with which to see

Who needs a helping hand

Open ears to listen

And a mind to understand

An open heart with which to shine

Hope into someone’s night

An open smile with which to gift

The world with Your inner light


Happy birthday, Jesus

Thank you for your birth

Noel, noel, Emmanuel

And peace to all on earth
