At St Brigid's

In St Brigid's at Crossley it is candles by candle light
Where the old church does echo to the strains of Silent Night
And other famous Christmas songs that refuse to fade away
On a pleasant December evening four sleeps from Christmas Day

The M C for the evening the renowned singer songwriter Shane Howard
With the gifts of song and music one who has been empowered
He sang and played guitar and introduced the singers and musicians some of the regions best
And no shortage of great talent in Victoria's South West

Around eight thirty at the arrival in St Brigid's of the ageless Santa Claus
There was clapping and singing and prolonged loud applause
Waving as he walked up the aisle in his red cap and red suit and long beard as white as snow
How old is Father Christmas would anybody know?

In kisses, hugs and handshakes friends each other did greet
On a pleasant get together where friends and families meet
In St Brigid's Church at Crossley 5 k's from Koroit Town
Just off of the quiet Crossley Road where few cars and trucks pass up and down

People of different generations young and old and in their prime
At St Brigid's Church in Crossley were having a good time
At carols by candle light four sleeps from Christmas Day
Such a beautiful occasion in the memory sure to stay.
