Behold, the Saviour!




1. The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,
His hair was like a light.
(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all aright.)

2. The Christ-child lay on Mary's breast,
His hair was like a star.
(O stern and cunning are the kings,
But here the true hearts are.)

3. The Christ-child lay on Mary's heart,
His hair was like a fire.
(O weary, weary is the world,
But here the world's desire.)

4. The Christ-child stood at Mary's knee,
His hair was like a crown.
And all the flowers looked up at Him,
And all the stars looked down.

Gilbert Keith (G. K.) Chesterton (1874 - 1936)

A Happy and Peaceful Christmas to you all. The boys and I will remember our blogging friends at Mass today.

Pax vobiscum!

GKC has been dead since 1936. I think copyright exists up to 50 years after the death of the author.
