'Oh, if only I had known!' Said the keeper of the inn.~~~ 'But no hint to me was shown,~~~And I didn't let them in.~~~Yes, a star gleamed overhead, but I couldn't read the skies,~~~And I'd given every bed To the very rich and wise.~~~Ahd she was so poorly clad, And he hadn't much to say!~~~But no room for them I had~~~ So I ordered them away.~~~She seemed tired, and it was late~~~ And they begged so hard, that I,~~~feeling sorry for her state~~ In the stable let them lie.~~~Had I turned some rich man out~~~ Just to make a place for them,~~~Twould have killed, beyone a doubt~~~ All my trade at Bethlehem.~~~Then there came the wise men three~~~ To the stable, with the morn,~~~Who announced they'd come to see~~~ The great King who had been born.~~~And they brought Him gifts of myrrh~~~ Costly frankincense and gold,~~~And a great light shone on her~~~ In the stable, bleak and cold.~~~All my patrons are dead~~~ And forgotten-but today~~~All the world to peace is led~~~ By the ones I sent away.~~~It was my unlucky fate~~~ To be born that inn to own~~~against Christ I shut my gate~~~ Oh, if only I had known!'

Come, ye thankful people, come~~~Raise the song of harvest home: All is safely gathered in,~~~Ere the winter storms begin;~~~ God, our Maker, doth provide~~~For our wants to be supplied;~~~ Come to God's own temple, come, Raise the song of harvest home.~~~~~ Even so, Lord, quickly come,~~~To thy final harvest home;~~~Gather thou thy people in,~~~Free from sorrow, free from sin;~~~There, forever purified~~~ In thy presence to abide:~~~Come, with all Thine angels, come,~~~Raise the glorious harvest home.

Yes - I am happy that Presdident Barack Obama has been re-elected. I voted for him. I did not want Mitt Romney to be Presdient. Something about him bothers me. And I didn't want a Black Presdient to be a one termer. There is a stigma attached to having one term - whether there should be or not. So - I got what I hoped and prayed for. But there should not be a lot of time for celebration. Too much is at stake in our Country. We need action NOW. There was too much time spent on the campaign - time when the President should have given his attention to the issues that are hurting us here in America. Congratulations - Presdient Obama. Now show us what you can do to heal the wounds of this Country. That is why we voted for you. It is time to put the election behind you and do your job.
