Christmas Poem, 2018


O come, all ye founded,

You who are strong

Built up by hope and gratefulness.

Rejoice, you who see clearly

The wonder of Emmanuel.

Draw near and worship.


O come, all ye fragile,

You who are battered,

Toppled, weakened, drowning.

Kneel upon the firm, dusty ground

Of the stable.

Bow before the One whose coming

Will make you stand.


And come, all ye faithless,

You who have been hardened

By life, or broken by it.

You who don’t believe in the Word made Flesh by Love.

Quiet doubt

In the hush of the holy night,

And listen for the song of angels.


Come, let us adore Him,

Wonderful, Mighty, True.

Christ the Lord.
