Once upon a time,
In the month of December
So long ago its hard to remember.
In an old log cabin on Christmas day,
A family gathering
Was about to pray.
â€œLord, bless our family and keep us together.
As we Love each other
In all kinds of weather.
We know that someday
The circle will be broken,
So help us each day with words that are spoken.
As we eat together, and share each otherâ€™s pain,
Help us Lord, not to complain.
Let us always reach out our hand
To aid and comfort any way we can.
Thank you for this, our daily bread,
And for listening
To what was just said.
