“A Christmas Wish” by Darius M. Ratcliff

“As the wise men came, bearing precious gifts so does this card bear to you my loving Christmas greetings”
Vintage Postcard


A CHRISTMAS WISH

A Christmas wish for you,

That I would have come true?

When all is said and done,

There can be only one.

The JOY the angel told

To shepherds by their fold

That Christ had come to give

To all who’d for him live.

The JOY the Wise Men felt

When by the Babe they knelt.

They’d sought for this afar

While following the star.

The JOY that Simeon knew,

And aged Anna  too,

When they the Babe received,

And on His Name believed.

The JOY that waits us now

When we to Jesus bow,

In answer to His call

To give to Him our all.

The JOY from God above,

The gift of wondrous love:

This JOY I wish for you;

In glorious fullness too.
