“Peace on earth. Goodwill to men” –
The angel song of old.
Its message timeless, – yet again
Its value more than gold.
Peace we seek with all our heart.
Dear angels, touch each breast
To help each one just make a start,
And let God do the rest.
Goodwill to one another show;
Treat all just like a friend:
Hold each in love where’re you go.
And ought that needs it, mend.
Let Christmas be a time to say
I’ve put away my fears:
I’m going now to start each day
With what will last for years.
Remember that a little boy
A life of love did fill,
To give mankind the greatest joy:
True peace and true goodwill.
