The Christmas days of long ago
To cheeks and eyes brought happy glow;
How beautiful the church bells chime
Bringing their message at this time.
The candles on the Christmas trees
Radiated sweet joy and peace;
The worshipers, old-fashioned still,
Sincere believed in peace, good will.

Today we find the times have changed,
Business-like programs are arranged.
Electric lights adorn the tree
Likewise tinsel glitters freely.
The church bell chimes are out-of-date,
No time to hear them, early, late.
But vested choirs march along
Filling the church with their new song.

Dear Father Time, once more we pray,
Let us live through those Christmas days
Which are lost in the hall of ages
But still live in memory's pages.
Today we hear the radio
Forever always on the go,
Some think that thirty minutes' time
Sufficient for worship divine.
