Merry Christmas to my Russian Friends




We do not celebrate
A season or a day
We celebrate the Christ-child

…and so we celebrate
The everlasting joy
Of Heaven’s Own come down to earth
In that wee baby boy

Is our celebration
Offering salvation…


With three words; ‘it is done’

And so we celebrate
Not seasons or a day
We celebrate the Love of Him
