The Magic Of Christ­mas

The People's Friend - - News - Maisie Bishop.

Chil­dren prac­tise car­ols in voices More suited to the foot­ball ter­races Than the con­cert hall.

And yet, when the mo­ment comes, And the hall is full,

The dec­o­ra­tions sparkle,

The heads of freshly washed hair glis­ten, And the chil­dren sing;

We see Je­sus

In all our in­fants, and

The tears fill our eyes.

The magic is there once more.
