Love Came Down at Christmas

December 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

This is one of my favorite poems or songs, depending on how you’ve heard it, that truly captures this time of year for me. Christina Rossetti was a prolific writer of verse and, though many may seem simplistic in style, her poems carry an unexpected gravity that makes them linger in your heart and mind.

“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 shall be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.”

It’s truth that I want to take into the rest of this year and the next and keep it ever before me. Enjoy a musical verson here.
