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

Christina Rossetti


  1. A happy and blessed Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for all the good work you do with your blog.

  2. Beautiful, Richard, and thank you! I love Victorian poetry.

    May you and your family have a blessed and happy Christmas.

  3. A very merry Christmas to you, Richard, and blessings to all those who read your terrific blog!

    God Bless,
    Pearl of Tyburn


  4. Thank you Dorothy, that is a very charitable comment. Chris, we share a great deal in common (age, JD, Grandchildren etc) and now I may add Victorian prose. Pearl, from you that is a great compliment. God bless you all.
