Christ and Christmas (Mary Baker Eddy)

(part 1) ------------ Christmas Eve ------------- (part 2)

Thus Christ, eternal and divine, 
To celebrate 
As Truth demands, - this living Vine 
Ye demonstrate. 

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib.
