1984 Christmas Poem

The love
That you sent
Must have been great
For it made you leave
Home and dignity
To come to us
The glory
You left behind
Must have been wonderful
For one sight of it
Blinded seeing eyes
And hurled men to your feet
The power
You brought along
Must have been awesome
For demons fled your presence
Cripples walked and
Sin and death no more remained
The joy
That followed you
Must have been boundless
For none could contain it
Once they had seen you
And worshipped at your feet
The peace that you promised
Must have been measureless
For you commanded it
To guard our hearts
And it is You

- 23 October 1984
