RHYMES AND REASONS
In Praise of Christmas Carols
There's no reason for silent nights this time of year

I love the carols that we sing. 
They bring joy to my world. 
While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
the angels praise unfurled.

Oh little town of Bethlehem, 
you heard the first noel. 
It came upon the midnight clear. 
Its lyrics we know well.

I heard the bells one silent night. 
A holy night it was 
"What child is this?" I heard him ask.
"It's Jesus, Santa Claus!"

The little drummer boy's convinced.
But Mary did you know 
the holly and the ivy point 
to Christ's birth long ago?
