Christmas Bread

In keeping with the tradition of inserting poems written by my dad during cetain times in the calendar year, here's one of his Christmas Eve Poems.

Christmas Bread

Now we break this bread together
Lord be with us here today
Make our lives your home forever
In Jesus name we pray.

Thank you for all you've given us
and on this special night
We share the gift of your son Jesus
Truly born in love's pure light.

Such a gift beyond all knowing
We are humbled in His sight
To live our lives like candles glowing
Our purpose to reflect His light.

So now we start but without merit
Lord please show us the way
Grant us your grace so we inherit
Christ, our bread, on Christmas day.
