Lyrics to the Christmas carol I (unfortunately for those listening) "sang" at our holiday party. Why does no one know "Good King Wenceslas"? Good King Wenceslas looked out On the feast of Stephen When the snow lay round about Deep and crisp and even Brightly shone the moon that night Though the frost was cruel When a poor man came in sight Gath'ring winter fuel "Hither, page, and stand by me If thou know'st it, telling Yonder peasant, who is he? Where and what his dwelling?" "Sire, he lives a good league hence Underneath the mountain Right against the forest fence By Saint Agnes' fountain." "Bring me flesh and bring me wine Bring me pine logs hither Thou and I will see him dine When we bear him thither." Page and monarch forth they went Forth they went together Through the rude wind's wild lament And the bitter weather "Sire, the night is darker now And the wind blows stronger Fails my heart, I know not how, I can go no longer." "Mark my footsteps, my good page Tread thou in them boldly Thou shalt find the winter's rage Freeze thy blood less coldly." In his master's steps he trod Where the snow lay dinted Heat was in the very sod Which the Saint had printed Therefore, Christian men, be sure Wealth or rank possessing Ye who now will bless the poor Shall yourselves find blessing

Generated summary (experimental)

CSS is an anti-poverty agency whose goal is to empower people in need, regardless of background, with the tools they need to reach their full potential.
Our efforts are focused on two specific populations that allow us to have the most significant impact in our community: families and seniors.
Our unique approach to helping our clients—most of whom are marginalized or struggling with poverty—is designed to help them overcome barriers to success while respecting their dignity and acknowledging their value to our community.
Our programs are holistic in nature, as we believe the cycle of poverty rarely has one solution, but rather requires a web of interconnected services for individuals and families to break out of it.
CSS has 70 years of experience working with seniors and families in Central Ohio.
Each year, our agency helps 33,000 people in our 23-county region.
We are accredited by the Council on Accreditation and the Better Business Bureau to illustrate our commitment to best practice social service and sound business management.
We are a member agency of Catholic Charities USA and the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County.
We invite you to join us in serving people in ways that help seniors live independent, connected lives and families thrive!
