Touch hands, touch hands,
With those that stay.
Strong hands to weak,
Old hands to young, around the
Christmas board touch hands.
The false forget, the foe forgive,
For every guest will go
And every fire burn low
And cabin empty stand.
For who may say that Christmas Day
May ever come to host or guest again.
(William Henry Harrison Murray 1840-1904)
Merry Christmas to all those here
who are helped
yet try again
I am the better because of you. And glad I am of you.
