Frozen ground beneath the stars
Lonely stillness near and far
Darkness over home and hearth

But then the sun arose

Casting rays of gold and amber
Waking life e’en in December
Warming, thawing all of nature
In the sun. Give thanks.


All was war and cold and hard
Darkness lay in each man’s heart
Hopelessness and death our part

But then the Son arose

Waking man to hope and life
In His love and in His light
Death no more our dreadful plight.
In the Son, give thanks.
