THE MYSTERY OF CHRISTMAS
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.
