Love came down at Christmas

6 December 2019

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas
Star and angels gave the sign.

Worship we the Godhead,
Love Incarnate, Love divine;
Worship we our Jesus
But wherewith for sacred sign?

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine;
Love to God and to all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.

Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
