  The mystery of Christmas is how souls
  Once crushed and broken can again be wholes,
  Be salvaged from the wasteland of our world
  And from their cramped conditions be unfurled.
  A Savior came to show the loving Way
  And save us from our evil and dismay,
  To show us that all others are our kin,
  And know that harming them is heinous sin.
  Each year we learn again that to be kind
  Is clearly what our Maker had in mind
  And that symbolically our Savior’s birth
  Serves to remind us of our kind’s true worth,
     That kindness is our mission, too—to save
     The Earth through love, which all souls daily crave.
