Christmas


He was poor, that he might make us rich.
He was born of a virgin that we might be born of God.
He took our flesh, that he might give us His Spirit.
He lay in the manger, that we may lie in paradise.
He came down from heaven, that he might bring us to heaven. (Thomas Watson)

(The Nativity scene is by the pre-Raphaelite artist Arthur Hughes.)
