Twelve Days of Christmas
Day Twelve
January 5, 2012
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me...
Twelve Drummers Drumming,
Eleven Pipers Piping,
Ten Lords A-leaping,
Nine Ladies Dancing,
Eight Maids A-milking,
Seven Swans A-swimming,
Six Geese A-laying,
Fiiivvve Gold Rings,
Four Calling Birds,
Three French Hens,
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree
The Twelve Drummers represent
The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles' Creed:
1) I believe in GOD, the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven and Earth.
2) I believe in Jesus Christ,
His Only Son, Our Lord.
3) He was conceived by the power of the
Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, died and was buried.
He decended into hell [the grave].
5) On the third day He rose again. He
ascended into Heaven, and is seated at
the right hand of the Father.
6) He will come again to judge
the living and the dead.
7) I believe in the Holy Spirit,
8) the Holy Catholic Church,
9) the Communion of Saints,
10) the forgiveness of sins
11) the resurrection of the body,
12) and life everlasting.
