Childrens Christmas Service
Our children now have done their best
To learn their parts, so you’ll be blessed.
They come with words and songs learned well,
That you, in turn, the tale may tell;
Of God’s own Son, who’s come to earth.
Of Jesus Christ’s most holy birth.
Our medium of message this day
Is one that very well just may
Cause you to say a thing or two—
Like, “This is surely something new!”
A Christmas cantata, the program says,
A few of the features this service has
Are unbroken streams of words in song,
And catchy new phrases of things that long
Ago we heard at Christmases before.
But this time the worship has something more.
With a minimum of tedium
And maximum of meaning,
This cantata is a medium
From which we will be gleaning
New insights on the Savior’s birth,
On what believers sensed and said;
New thoughts on that pious, holy mirth
That Luther says the angels had.
“This Is a Time of Revelation”,
(That’s a song they will be singing)
And we receive the meditation
The children will be bringing.
With quality of melody,
And melody of rhyme,
Our children sing “The Birth of Jesus”,
For you–it’s Christmas time.
It is Free
