The orange is round as the Earth
Created by God in this way.
We hold it for Christ and His birth,
In Bethlehem where He did lay.
The sticks are the seasons He brings,
That change as the world spins around.
The warmth of the summer and spring,
The winter freeze, leaves that turn brown.
The fruits are the gifts He bestows.
The good things He brought – love and peace.
The ribbon’s the Spirit that flows,
And is given to all who believe.
The candle sits proud and upright,
No matter what ills should befall.
The flame is a beacon of light,
Like Jesus the Lord of us all.
