Happy Christmas! I hope that wherever you are, your day is filled with warmth and joy – and most of all with love.
‘Love be yours and love be mine, / Love to God and all men,’ wrote English poet Christina Rossetti. Here, to inspire your Christmas Day, is her poem, ‘Love Came Down at Christmas’ (1885).
Here by 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 all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.
