Merry Christmas to all!

My favorite Christmas hymn/poem

Love came down at Christmas

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
Worship we the Godhead,
Love Incarnate, Love Divine;
Worship we our Jesus,
But wherewith for sacred sign?

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and all men,
Love for plea and gift and sign.

Christina Rossetti

It's still 'In The Bleak Midwinter' for me. What an underrated poet CR is.

I agree about Rossetti being underrated. I love to read 'In the Bleak Midwinter' as a poem but the tune grates on me through overexposure during my schooldays!
