12 days of Christmas 12

Sorry for the delay, folks. I don't have internet hook-up at my new place, so right now I am relying on coffeeshop wifi. Enjoy the last of the Christmas series!

Madonna with the Christ Child, Sassoferrato (1609-1685)

Love came down at Christmas
by Christina Rosetti

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.
