Dear Father, on this Christmas Day
I thank Thee for the Child who lay
In a stable long ago.
And I thank Thee that the glow
Of light and love about Him then
Still is felt and known to men.
I thank Thee that this season brings
Remembrance of the King of kings
And of the star and angel throngs
And peace expressed in heavenly songs.
I thank Thee too for every way
Thy love has blessed us on this day.
