! ! Carol For Advent - Poem by Michael Shepherd

‘As the sun that shines through glass,
so Jesus in his mother was; ’

as a babe in cot be laid,
so was He in Mary made;

as ripe fruit in basket laden,
so He ripened in a maiden;

as the scriptures long foretold,
so He came at midnight cold;

as the world wakes to warm dawn,
for the world, was Jesus born;

as God’s message comes to earth,
so He came in human birth;

as the truth has its own sound,
so His Word is spread around;

as wise men are first to know,
so tell all men, it is so:

as the smile upon God’s face,
so He brings us heaven’s grace;

as our hearts are warmed by love,
as our minds are stilled by peace,
so we know the heavens above;
so we know our own soul’s bliss;

as the sun that lights our days,
cradled in each heart He lays.
