Without Christmas, there is no Easter;
Life, salvation, and joy from both these events proceed.
Therefore, take heed:
Rejoice in both feasts and help those who are in need.
During Christmas, however, there is a risk of greed
Over presents such as a toy, a sweater, a golden bead;
But open your heart and open the Bible to read –
Let God take the lead!
