Christmas Prayer

                              At the turning-point of time

                              the spirit-light of the world

                              entered the stream of Earth existence.

                              Darkness of night

                              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 consecrated willing!
