Lyrics as Poetry

Look toward Christmas!
Advent is here:
welcome December
changing the year,
whistle up, shepherds!
saddle up, kings!
chorus up, angels,
flexing your wings,Refrain:sing, sing alleluia! sing, sing alleluia!
sing, sing out the Story
sing about hope and peace!
Set the world singing,
make the world glad!
Now is good reason
not to feel sad,
hear John the Baptist
shout to prepare:
Good News is coming,
earth, be aware.— Refrain —Mary and Joseph
soon is the day,
ready the donkey,
start on your way:
you are the chosen,
willing to trust,
joyful your burden
carrying Christ,— Refrain —
