A young man felt that his departure drew near. Since it was Christmas season, he wrote a message to his family to comfort them:
All over the country I see trees of Christmas.
Their faint lights shining each like a star
Reflected on the snow they bring forth splendor
With Jesus this year in Heaven I happily enjoy Christmas
His glory is reflected on all the saints and me
A shining star he made of each one of us.
I hear Christmas carols that all tongues sing
Much joy and happiness in all hearts bring.
Yet, the hymn of Heaven is sweeter than any praise
I learnt it and now I sing it with delight.
Its language is love,
Its tune eternal joy.
No language can ever tell
About the Heavenly praises' spell.
We're a unique chorus,
With joy Heavens we fill.
All people are busy buying Christmas presents,
Wishing to make for others wonderful surprises.
I now sent you my unique gift
My invaluable prayers for you I offer.
My love for you is greater than any treasure.
Accept my gift better than any surprise.
I hear you telling kids Christmas stories.
Ah! if you keep love for one another
Heaven will praise you forever.
I know how you long for me,
I feel how it is like to miss me,
But sure I'm not far away.
Wipe away your tears and never sigh again
I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ in Heaven.
The First Christmas with
