Christmas Prose and Poetry


I ask and wish not to appear
More beauteous, rich or gay:
Lord make me wiser every year,
And better every day.

Charles Lamb


A heart that can feel for another's woe,
And share his joys with a genial glow;
With sympathies large enough to enfold
All men as brothers, is better than gold.

 Abram Joseph Ryan


He is the happiest, be he king or peasant,
who finds peace in his home.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not,
but rejoice for those which he has. Epictetus
He who receives a benefit with gratitude,
repays the first installment on his debt.



It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Acts 20:35


May joy come from God above
To all those who Christmas love.  

13 th century carol


The world is so full of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.

Robert Louis Stevenson


What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring Him a lamb -
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part -
Yet what I can, I give Him,
Give my heart.

Christina Rossetti


I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Henry Wadswort Longfellow


Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you
and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven,
for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Mth. 5:3-12
