At this time of year when we are filled
With joy and expectation,
We await the celebration
Of Jesus coming at His birth.
We find that we are also filled
With a sense of anticipation
And a joyful realization
That Christ again will return to earth!
In this Advent time of waiting
With our hearts and minds preparing
For a time of giving and sharing
And hearts overflowing with love,
We need to remember while waiting
To always be kind and caring,
Helping others with burdens they’re bearing,
As we await Christ’s return from above.
