... from Bach's "Christmas Oratorio".
    Within yon gloomy manger lies
    The LORD Who reigns above the skies:
    Within the stall where beasts have fed
    The Virgin-born doth lay His head.
    * * * * *
    How shall I fitly meet Thee,
    And give Thee welcome due?
    The nations long to greet Thee,
    And I would greet Thee too.
    O Fount of light, shine brightly
    Upon my darken'd heart;
    That I may serve Thee rightly,
    And know Thee as Thou art.
    * * * * *
    Ah ! dearest JESUS, Holy Child,
    Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled,
    Within my heart, and there recline,
    And keep that chamber ever Thine.

A very merry Christms, or such other good wishes as sit easily with your traditions and beliefs, to you all.
