I just received this today. May you find it edifiying.
Hanging a Wreath at Christmas
Since I have come to know God’s love
I’ll think a little more
When hanging up the festive wreath
Of holly on my door.
I see in it a crown of thorns
Placed on my Savior’s brow
That I may have the gift of life;
What meaning it has now!
The thorns are there–so needle sharp;
The berries, too, are red
Not too unlike the precious blood
That on the cross was shed.
I’ll hang with prayer this holly wreath
For all the world to see;
Perchance, the lonely passerby
Will feel God’s love through me.
Within our homes, let there be love
“And peace on earth to men,”
As we remember in our hearts
The Babe of Bethlehem.
