When You Buy Their Sorrow


Icy winds filled with chimney smoke

Signaled the burning of Christmas block,

When colorful lights all around gleam

The holy monks sing the merry theme,

Sacred lilies, decorative ivory, fill homes

Town to town our joyful echo roams,

Perch like a bird around the tree to sing

Listen to chorus, sweet jingle bells bring,

Meet the beloved ones you missed daily

Hug the foes; don’t let slip away easily,

Rich and poor at the same table

Do the labor but make it a fable,

Let care go some hidden place

Let love take its due space,

Drink and drown all the worry

No one seems alone or in hurry,

Once you have the Christ sign in thy heart

Feeling His grace makes you Gilbert,

The God loves all in their true form

Shun the bad habits in His charm,

Time to wish all a prosperous morrow

It’s Merry Christmas when you buy their sorrow
