The Child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon Him. Luke 2:40

Sweet Savior, once again this year
Brings to the happy earth
The season held forever dear
On which we hail Thy birth!
We think of Thee as once a child
Who sought a mother’s face,
An infant innocent and mild,
Who grew in years and grace.
Our wills and tempers, Lord, control,
And give us eyes to see,
The tender heart, and loving soul,
The mind that was in Thee.
