Carrying On The Spirit Of Christmas

CARRY ON CHRISTMAS

Carry on Christmas

Faces all aglow,

People filled with cheer

despite the economy,

Carry on Christmas,

giving to those in need

A simple gesture

a comforting tone

Why must it stop December 26

The spirit is still here

In all who believe

and for all who will receive

33 years later his blood flowed

salvation by grace

to us bestowed

Now sharing His glory

is our story

One season

one month

one day

it does not end

it is up to us

His Word to send

Let the love of this day

continue I pray

enjoy this spirit

everyday

Pass it on

to all we greet

we never know

just who we will meet

Christmas lives in our heart

never let it depart

Give to all

willing to hear

spread the love

in bountious cheer

for we never know

the one last year

when Christ calls us home

before His throne

He then asks

what we have done

to keep His love

alive in this world

did we keep it to ourselves

or share it abroad

not just in the house of God

do not wait

till the end of the year

to spread this cheer

pass it on

every day this year

Why is Christmas but one day, when it should be done all year. Showing love and compassion is not or atleast it should not be just a one day event but 365 days.

I agree with you that love to Christ should be every day,

365 days a year. From your reckoning, Christmas is redundant.
