Feast your soul on this delicacy from the 17th Century English poet, Richard Crashaw. It’s a step up from “Here Comes Santa Claus.”
Welcome, all wonders in one sight!
Eternity shut in a span;
Summer in winter; day in night;
Heaven in earth, and God in man.
Great little one, whose all-embracing birth
Lifts earth to heaven, stoops heav’n to earth.
from “In the Holy Nativity of Our Lord God”
Richard Crashaw, 1652
