Love came down

This is the hymn that we used tonight which is a Christina Rosetti poem put to music. Some of the lyrics have been modified and updated from the original poem, but the meaning remains the same.

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, love divine;
Love was born at Christmas,
Star and angels gave the sign.

Worship we the Godhead,
Love incarnate, love divine;
Worship we our Jesus:
What shall be our sacred sign?

 

Love shall be our token,
Love be yours and love be mine,
Love to God and neighbor,
Love for pray’r and gift and sign.
Christina Rosetti
