The Joy Of Christmas
Author: Joseph Ogbonna
Oh what a pleasant day to behold:
A glorious evening in December,
a day we are sure to remember
the nostalgic happy days of old.
Oh what beautiful moments unfold:
The gladdened carol voices raised,
Santa's delights, candle lights of gold,
and renewed moments hardly erased.
Oh what momentous delights abound;
the merriment from hearts well laden with Joy,
children getting amused with each new toy;
thus restoring bliss once lost but found.
Oh what a day to wipe our annual tears,
to bid a short farewell to all our fears,
to replace our worries with Joy and peace,
desiring that they eternally cease.
Oh what a lovely day to keep the streets aglow;
to lighten every alley with lights ever bright,
to illuminate the paths we tread without light;
A rare scene to behold for both the high and low.
Oh what a most pleasant day to reconcile:
A day when the embittered in joyous mood
makes peace with a foe without the slightest guile,
as they laugh and merry with champagne and food.
