|This is the truth send from above (alt)|
This is the- * truth- * send- * from a- *- bove,
the truth of- * God, the God- * of- * Love.
Therefore don't- * turn me from- * your door- *- *
but- * harken- * all both rich and- * poor.
And at that- * sea- *- son- * of the- * year,
our blest Re- *- deemer did- * ap- *- pear.
He here did- * live, and here- *- * did- * preach,
and- * many- * thousands he did- * reach.
God grant to- * all- * who have reached this- * site
love, faith, and- * peace, encircled by God's might,
which to all- * people does- *- * be- *- long,
and- * thus we- * close our Christmas- * song.
