MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christmas Bells

I heard the bells on Christmas DayTheir old, familiar carols play,And wild and sweetThe words repeatOf peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled alongThe unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Till, ringing, singing on its way The world revolved from night to day,A voice, a chime,A chant sublime Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black, accursed mouthThe cannon thundered in the South, And with the sound The Carols drowned Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;‘For hate is strong,And mocks the song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:‘God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!The Wrong shall fail,The Right prevail,With peace on earth, good-will to men!’
Wishing all my friends a Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Years! Let next year be better for everyone!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
