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 the sacred sign?
Love shall be our token;
love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and to all men,
love for plea and gift and sign.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.

the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
