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.
