Advent 2006: Love came down at Christmas

Don't forget: I may call this my Advent project, but the project continues even though Advent is now over! I'll be posting seasonal poetry and prose through Epiphany, January 6.

Love came down at Christmas

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 to all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.

Christina G. Rossetti (1830 – 1894)
