Christingle Poem 2013

It's that time of year when I am in the midst of planning for a myriad of christmas services and parties and events at church.  One of the earliest of the season, and one of my favourite, is the Christingle Service.  Last year I wrote a poem about Christingle and I was going to include it in our order of service for this year but decided it wasn't quite right; so here it is amended/updated/perfected (I wish).

If the orange is the world
And the candle is the light
Then we know Jesus is with us
Every day and every night

If the sweets are the seasons
And gifts given by Him
Then we know to always thank God
To cheer and clap and sing

If the ribbon is Jesus’ blood
His love wrapped round us all
Then no one needs feel lonely
He'll catch us when we fall

This is the Christingle
A service full of fun
Raising money for little children
God loves us, every one.
