Let this day vanquish our differences

 

for father is still the head.

 

Put by our petty grievance,

 

let family rule the day.

 

 

 

Come brother let us be at peace

 

your heart can melt this snow.

 

The voice of child was always you

 

and the tears of ancestors

 

now watch with pride

 

of the man you have become.

 

 

 

Your place in life

 

 is to be at this feast,

 

the family is united.

 

This legacy of Christmas joy

 

has written your story.

 

The manger has carried your children

 

and a star shines upon this house

 

because of you.

 

 

 

So remember this day

 

family is precious

 

 the joys of the world belong to you

 

 

 

 Happiness has smiled

 

 health is in celebration.

 

So Grandmother be proud

 

for this is the legacy of you.

 

 

 

 Joy permeates this house

 

The eyes of the child

 

look up to the family.

 

So drink to mother and father

 

for they gave roots to this tree.

 

Our family is the earth and the earth is you,

 

On this day we can all believe.

 

 

 

The hurt of the world be gone

 

It is a day of forgiveness

 

and that is enough.

 

 

 

Rejoice on this special day

 

Christmas was born for you.

 

The pages of time are yours to write

 

and your story will go on and on.
