It's the spirit of Christmas that infuses cheerfulness and warmth in cold winter nights. Singing carols and reciting poems during Christmas is an age-old tradition that instils joy in the heart of both singers and listeners. Here are some delightful and easy Christmas rhymes that you can teach your children.
If we practiced Jesus every way, It'd be like Christmas every day; If we, like Him, were meek and mild And loved each woman, man and child, If we'd read our Bible, it'd remind us, So that every single day would find us More and more in sweet accord With our sweet Jesus - Master, Lord. Then every day that we're alive Would be like December 25.
It is Christmas in the mansion, Yule-log fires and silken frocks; It is Christmas in the cottage, Mother’s filling little socks. It is Christmas on the highway, In the thronging, busy mart; But the dearest truest Christmas Is the Christmas in the heart.
The funniest face Looked out at me From a silver ball On the Christmas Tree! At first I thought It was Santa’s elf, But I looked again and It was just myself!
Cookies baking in the kitchen- The smell floats through the air; Mom is making Christmas With her usual merry flair The house she gaily decorated, Each gift she stitched with love, And we'll gather around the Christmas tree For an evening of old-fashioned fun This evening she'll sing a carol for us With her angel's voice. Yes, Mom is making Christmas- A true reason to rejoice.
The gifts I’d leave beneath your tree, Aren’t those that you can touch or see, Not wrapped in Christmas tissue gay But gifts to bless you every day The gift of friendship warm and true, Is one that I would leave for you Good health and happiness and cheer To keep you smiling through the year The gift of peace that comes from God, With prayer to guide each path you trod And when your heart has lost its song The gift of hope to cheer you on These are the gifts I’d leave for you
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away Like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
S stands for stockings we hang up so high. A is for all we get if we don’t cry. N is for nobody he will pass by. T is for to-morrow, the day we eat pie. A stands for at last old Santa is nigh. C for the children who love him so well. L for the little girl, his name she can spell. A stands for apples so rosy and red. U is for us as we wait for his sled. S stands for Santa Claus, who comes in the night when we are tucked up in bed with our eyes closed so tight!
We have been helping with the cake, And licking out the pan, And wrapping up our packages, As neatly as we can. We have hung our stockings up, Beside the open grate. And now there’s nothing more to do, Except To Wait.
A chubby little snowman had a carrot nose. Along came a bunny, and what do you suppose? That hungry little bunny, looking for some lunch, Grabbed that snowman’s nose, Nibble, nibble, crunch!
Now that the time has come wherein Our Savior Christ was born, The larder’s full of beef and pork, The granary’s full of corn, As God hath plenty to thee sent, Take comfort of thy labors, And let it never thee repent To feed thy needy neighbors.
Bright Christmas stars shine on high, Golden stars in the wint’ry sky; Christmas candles in windows bright Send s greeting into the night; While in our hearts the Christmas flame, Glows with a love like his who came, The infant Christ of lowly birth, To bring good will and peace to earth.
Out of the snowy lawn The snowman grew Wearing a hat and scarf The way that you do With pebbles for eyes pressed into the snow A smiley twig mouth And a large carrot nose He’s a magnificent site The snowman that grew But he’s just snow and ice And no substitute for you I wish you were here To chase the blues away I wish you’d come back To me for Christmas day
