May the joy of the angels, the excitement of the shepherds, the perseverance of the wise men, the obedience of Joseph, the faithfulness of Mary, and the peace of the Christ Child be yours this Christmas. Adapted from Christmas eve service at St Johns Gordon.)
It is Christmas day in Australia, a beautiful day here in Sydney with sunshine and temps in the 80s. Last night we attended the Christmas Eve service at the local Anglican church and I wanted to share this delightful Australian Christmas carol that we sang.
Boomerang of flowers
A child is lying cradled here beneath the slender gum
The God of might has left his home and to Australia come
The Kookaburra laughs with glee
The shy koala peeps
The magpie carols blissfully as little Jesus sleeps
What shall we give our infant King?
A boomerang of flowers
To say come back and stay with us and be forever ours.
