By Jeannette Cabraal
It was peace that pervaded the atmosphere that
It was peace that encompassed Bethlehem’s plains and heights.
It was the message of peace that the angels proclaimed
“Peace on earth, goodwill to men.”
Peace the hallmark of the Christ-child’s birth
Which the world celebrates with enjoyment and mirth
The message of peace unheeded, thwarted, lies
What a return for the Godhead’s supreme sacrifice.
That peace, which truly embodies the Christmas season
Be accepted by man- endowed by God with will and reason
That the message of peace be propagated, restored, world-wide
Peace! The message of the Christ-child.
