Description Publisher
CHRISTMAS CARD, A (SATB/organ or piano) was commissioned by Dr. Joseph Henry and the Peoria Civic Choral, Peoria, Illinois.  This anthem is reminiscent of a popular music style similar to "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." Although A Christmas Card seems innocent and straightforward, it is a study in counterpoint.  The lines are all quite melodic, so they are appreciated by any audience.  
The text:

When it's Christmas time, love is in the air again so we think of you, as we always do.  
Then we make this prayer, 'Let it last forever while it's Christmas time.'
There is peace on Earth, again.  
Let it be secure.  
May it long endure.
Join us in this prayer: 'Let it last forever!'  
The world is joyful now, while it's Christmas time.  

When the church bells ring, there's a chance that you'll remember how people used to sing all the yule-tide carols.      
Sitting side-by-side, they would take a sleigh ride; they would sing beneath "His star," while it was Christmas time.
Merry Christmas!
