Your Christmas Heart

Christmas Day has come and gone.

Hang the suits and velvet donned.

 Annual visits of relatives and friends.

Gifts to give and cards to send.

Carols sung. Traditions kept.

Return flights home. Tears are wept.

Christ the Lord is born.


Was this season for you made new?

Has the Christ been born in you?

Is His new flesh on your bones?

Incarnate heart in spoken tones?

A body now is Christ in you?

One flesh where before was two?

A holy union He has made

By stooping low, though unafraid

To humble Himself thus….

All the years can be the same,

Unless the Child of Bethlehem’s fame

Has truly found a manger home

Within your Christmas heart…..within your Christmas heart.
