Merry Christmas

~~~





The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,


His hair was like a light.

(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all alright.)




The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast

His hair was like a star.
(O stern and cunning are the kings,
But here the true hearts are.




The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart,

His hair was like a fire.
(O weary, weary is the world,
But here the world's desire.)




The Christ-child stood on Mary's knee,

His hair was like a crown, 
And all the flowers looked up at Him,
And all the stars looked down.


-A Christmas Carol, by G.K. Chesterton

Have a wonderful Christmas!
