He came to Bethlehem


            That’s History.

            That’s Victory!

To the Friends of Friendsville, widespread

Joyous Holiday Greetings are said.

In the season of green, and gold, and red

Blessings, be on you all.


That Christ, Who was born near a donkey’s stall,

That came to cure Adam’s race from its fall,

Who, grown to a Man, faced Pilate’s drear hall

He’s the reason, for the season.


The Creator became a virgin’s Son.

He dwelt among men, just like He was one,

Enduring their words, blasphemous “fun.”

The virgin’s Boy brought the world joy.


Christmas to many, means new cloths, a toy

To some happiness, to others annoy.

The pessimist see only employ,

How benighted, when they could be Lighted.
