A gift of love on Christmas Day
Like Father Christmas on his sleigh
Being kind and generous, too
On this tough year, what we’ve gone through
Let’s be patient, help each other, all of above
From one to ninety nine we give a gift of love
Christmas is here and Christ was born
Deck the halls and our house adorn
Let’s celebrate with our cheers
Be merry even without dears
As long as we’re safe, keeping distance, be aware
We’ll get through this pandemic for Christmas is here*

The Wrapped Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of 2 or more stanzas of 6 lines each; Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.
Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line. This is what wraps each stanza with a repeated refrain …thus, the Wrapped Refrain.
