Love Came Down at Christmas
Love came down at Christmas, love all lovely, love divine; Love was born at Christmas; Star and angel 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
