Love

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
what shall be our sacred sign?

Love shall be our token,
love be yours and love be mine;
love to God and neighbour,
love for prayer and gift and sign.

—Love came down at Christmas, Christina G Rossetti (1830 – 1894)
