  Newborn Jesus  

 

Lo! newborn Jesus,
    Soft and weak and small,
Wrapped in baby's bands
By His Mother's hands,
    Lord God of all.

Lord God of Mary,
    Whom His Lips caress
While He rocks to rest
On her milky breast
    In helplessness.

Lord God of shepherds
    Flocking through the cold,
Flocking through the dark
To the only Ark,
    The only Fold.

Lord God of all things,
    Be they near or far,
Be they high or low;
Lord of storm and snow,
    Angel and star.

Lord God of all men,--
    My Lord and my God!
Thou who lovest me,
Keep me close to Thee
    By staff and rod.

Lo! newborn Jesus,
    Loving great and small,
Love's free Sacrifice,
Opening Arms and Eyes
    To one and all.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
