Poem by Wendye Savage

Joy to the world

The earth did not receive it’s King;

For the Light shone in the darkness

And much havoc did it bring.

He caused the dead to rise

Allowed the blind to see;

With the power in His hands

Calmed the raging seas.

So they whipped Him and spat on Him

Gave His clothes to lot;

Hung Him in between common thieves

He was accepted not.

So as gifts are being given throughout the land

To children at heart, boys and girls;

Let us not forget about the greatest gift of all

……  Joy to the world.
