Never Lose Hope

14 Sleeps till Christmas

Never Lose Hope

There’s no better time than now

When the world is so fraught

With hurt, pain and sadness

T’is the season to be jolly

Open your hearts, your souls

To the wonder that Christmas brings

 

“Peace on earth and good will to all”

Doesn’t that sound so much more than

“Get out of my face you bum and get a job”

Better than

“You’re just weighing me down I don’t need you”

Love thy Neighbour

 

There’s no cliché in Christmas

So don’t look for it

Celebrate the hope and the joy it brings

For it can endure

Be the hand that reaches out

As the light of a single candle reaches through the dark

 

Be joy; be love, be hope!

Not just Christmas Day but everyday

Let the Yuletide Spirit fill you

And flow through your finger tips

Like sun’s rays through a cloudy day

Passing on the smile it brings

 

For a smile can be contagious

It brings happiness and laughter

All the year round

Life can be a beautiful ride

Lead by example

Never lose hope
