Joy!

Do you know such joy?
Do you HAVE that joy?
What is stopping you? Only what you allow!

Joy to the world! Joy to the heart!
May stress and worry have no part.
May the Goodness of the season
far eclipse all other reason!

Oh, living Light of Christmas,
You shine throughout the year!
Your light, it is eternal,
can such be grasped while here?
You shine so deep within us--
oh, let us each allow:
be Light within us even more
unto the groping now!

Joy unspoken, oh, the poet
seeks each living phrase!
So far beyond a shopping spree
be Your eternal praise!
Jesus, You are Joy alone
right now and evermore!
Jesus Christ--the greatest reason
Christmas time is for!!
