By Evelyn Wooster Viner
When the Yule log on the fire burns
With wintry winds outside,
It seems an easy thing to say,
“’Tis well whate’er betide.”
When wintry winds are in our hearts,
The hearth fire but a spark,
And Yuletide joy seems far away,
Then life indeed is dark.
Oh! Let us hold the Christmas cheer
All the long year ’round
That through the world good will and joy
May bountifully abound.
