December 11th – Christmas Carol (Longfellow)

Christmas Carol
by: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When Christ was born in Bethlehem,
‘Twas night, but seemed the noon of day;
The stars, whose light
Was pure and bright,
Shone with unwavering ray;
But one, one glorious star
Guided the Eastern Magi from afar.

Then peace was spread throughout the land;
The lion fed beside the tender lamb;
And with the kid,
To pasture led,
The spotted leopard fed;
In peace, the calf and bear,
The wolf and lamb reposed together there.


Christ came to bring peace. Let’s spread it this Christmas season 🙂
