Vintage Christmas cards with pocket inside to money

Vintage Christmas cards with pocket to money in Christmas gift.
That's more exciting than an envelope with money.

Inside this card, the text are from the lovely Christmas melody, in danish "Dejlig er den himmel blÄ" written by N.F.S. Grundtvig:
Bright and Glorious is the sky,
Radiant are the heavens high
Where the golden stars were shining
And the rays to earth inclinning,
Beckoning us to Heaven above,
Beckoning us to Heaven above.
On that holy Christmas night
Through the darkness beamed a light
All the stars above were paling,
All their luster slowly failing,
As the Christmas star drew nigh,
As the Christmas star drew nigh.

Inside this card I found a poem at the Internet.
