SOUNDS OF CHRISTMAS EVE

2020 – THURSDAY 24 DECEMBER

SOUNDS OF CHRISTMAS EVE

THE SOUNDS OF PAPER RUSTLING
AND STICKY TAPE USED BEYOND MEASURE
WITH PARENTS WRAPPING LAST-MINUTE GIFTS
ALL FOR THEIR FAMILIES PLEASURE

THE SMELL OF OVENS BAKING
AND PRESENTS PLACED UNDER THE TREE
WHILE CHILDREN KEEP ON WAKING
EXCITED TO BE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

WILL SANTA REALLY COME TONIGHT
OR IS IT JUST A HUGE BIG JOKE
AND YET WE HEAR THE SOUND OF SOMEONE MOVING
DRESSED IN HIS HUGE RED SANTA CLOAK

THE TRADITIONAL CAROLS FROM THE MELBOURNE MUSIC BOWL
GATHER FRIENDS TOGETHER BOTH ONE AND ALL
WITH GUSTER NOT SEEN SINCE LAST CHRISTMAS EVE
WE SING THE SONGS OF GOD’S GREAT MYSTERY

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE
THAT ALL THIS GREAT COMMOTION
COULD BE LINKED TO A GREAT GOD OCCASION
OR IS IT JUST ANOTHER RETAIL PROMOTION

AND SO WE LAY DOWN TO CATCH SOME SLEEP
KNOWING IT WILL BE SHORT BUT O SO SWEET
THE MORNING WILL COME WITH ALL ITS CHEER
ANNOUNCING TO ALL
THE SAVIOUR IS HERE

HAVE A HAPPY AND
GOD BLESSED CHRISTMAS
