Merry Christmas!

Thou Whose Birth
A.C. Swinburne

Thou whose birth on earth
Angels sang to men,
While the stars made mirth,
Savior, at thy birth
This day born again.

As this night was bright
With thy cradle-ray,
Very light of light,
Turn the wild world's night
To thy perfect day.

Bid our peace increase,
Thou that madest morn.
Bid oppressions cease.
Bid the night be peace.
Bid the day be born.
