If you know where to get a good pho­to of Ford or Farns­worth (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Once the an­gels sang a carol,
Floating through the air,
Telling of the in­fant Je­sus,
Sweet, and pure and fair.


Glory, glo­ry in the high­est,
Peace on earth to men;
As the an­gels sang that morn­ing
Sing we now again.

Once the shep­herds, watch­ing faith­ful,
By their flocks at night,
Saw a star whose ho­ly ra­di­ance
Made the whole world bright.


Once the wise men, tra­vel­ing on­ward,
From their homes afar,
Found a Sav­ior in a man­ger,
Guided by a star.
