    Do Not Wait Till Christmas

    Friendly greetings, smiles and nods,
    Passing neighbours on the roads –
    These are steps upstairs to God’s home – climb them.
    If you’d make life more sublime,
    If you’ve carillons to chime, chime them –
    Do not wait till Christmas.

    If you’d brighten my death-bed,
    Do not wait until I’m dead;
    Come at once, not only once, but often.
    If you’ve love to me to give,
    Give it to me while I live –
    Do not wait until the lid is on my coffin –
    Give it now.
