Fear Not πŸŽ„

by Luisa Kay Reyes

Fear not The Way to receive
On this lovely Christmas Eve
For The Light of the World has come
To still the darkness and render it numb.

Fear not The Truth to admire
With carols of joy that inspire
For Christ was born in a manger
To help goodness vanquish all danger.

Fear not to The Life to pay heed
By aiding and respecting the ones in need
For Jesus was born on Christmas Day
To give virtue the courage to have some say.
