Merry, Merry Christmas!

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.  ~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby

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 for sacred sign?

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

Words: Christina RossettiTime Flies: a Reading Diary, 1885.

Music: GARTON, traditional Irish melody 

This lovely little hymn has been in my mind all week.  It encapsulates something special about Christmas for me this year. 

Listen to it here (although it is not the best version of this little tune).  If, for some reason, the page has changed then go to the home page and search for Love Came Down in Titles under 'L'. 

Have a very Merry Christmas!!

"Today in the town of David, a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
