Winter Benediction

Winter Benediction

 

IV Winter

 

When winter comes and winds are cold and keen,

When nights are darkest, though the stars shine bright,

When life shrinks to its roots, or sleeps unseen,

Then may he bless and bring you to his light.

For he has come at last, and can be seen,

God’s love, made vulnerable, tightly curled:

The Winter Child, The Saviour Of The World.
