MacDonald: The Christmas Child

Friday, December 25, 2020
    [Jesus:] “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.”
    —John 14:1 (NIV)
“Little one, who straight hast come
    Down the heavenly stair,
Tell us all about your home,
    And the father there.”

“He is such a one as I,
    Like as like can be.
Do his will, and, by and by,
    Home and him you’ll see.”
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), The Poetical Works of George MacDonald, v. 2, London: Chatto & Windus, 1893, p. 190 (see the book)
    See also John 14:1-3; Isa. 9:6-7; Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 2:4-7
