In Remembrance Again 🎄

by Debbie Felio

Once again in dark December
we are called to gather
to worship the Child
born in a manger

Called again, each to remember
we belong to one another.
None too good or too wild
we welcome all - friend and stranger.

In prideful falls, we all are sinners
in need of this Gift from the Father
forgiveness from a baby meek and mild.
We walk in Light - darkness no longer.

Coming together 
again in December
in unity to remember
He is the King of All.
