Our Father who art in heaven, hear this Christmas prayer, and if it be thy gracious will, may joy be everywhere — the joy that comes from knowing that the holy Christ child came to bless the earth at Christmas for thy sake and in thy name. And with this prayer there comes a wish that these holy, happy days will bless you and your loved ones in many joyous ways.
Helen Steiner Rice 1940-1950
