For God so loved the world




       At the turning point of time

       the spirit-light of the world

       entered the stream of Earth existence.

       Darkness of light

       had ceased its reign;

       day-radiant light

       shone forth in human souls:

       light that gives warmth

       to simple shepherds' hearts,

       light that enlightens

       the wise heads of kings.




       Godly Light!

       Christ Sun!

       Warm our hearts!

       enlighten our heads!

       that good may come

       from what we cradle in our hearts,

       what we direct from our heads

       with true-to-the-mark, consecrated willing!
