Love [12-19-21]

In 1883, Christina Rossetti wrote a poem, Love Came Down at Christmas. Over the years, it has been set to music by various composers. It is a wonderfully simple song. Here are the lyrics:

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 all neighbor,
