Searching for the Christmas Spirit

Searching for the Christmas spirit –
Is it heard when angels sing?
Is it found in deeds of merit?
Is it heard when church bells ring?
Come and treasure Jesus’ memory;
All the beauty it can bring.

As we sing of joy and mystery,
As we sing of Jesus’ birth,
Overwhelmed with myth and history,
We rejoice with all the earth.
Come and treasure Jesus’ memory;
All its wonder; all its worth.

Let us look beyond the manger
To the man of truth and light;
He who loved both foe and stranger;
Always struggled for the right.
Come and treasure Jesus’ memory;
All its power; all its might.

Let us look beyond the story
To his cross and empty tomb;
Then our hearts will find the glory
Of the fruit of Mary’s womb.
Come and treasure Jesus’ memory;
Let it flourish; let it bloom.
