Havergal: Unto you the Child is born

Monday, December 25, 2023
    But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”
    —Luke 2:10-11 (NIV)
Unto you the Child is born,
On this blessed Christmas morn.
Unto you, to be your peace;
    Unto you, for He hath found you;
Unto you, with full release,
    From the weary chains that bound you:
Unto you that you may rise
Unto Him above the skies.
    ... Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879), The Poetical Works of Frances Ridley Havergal, New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1888, p. 166 (see the book)
    See also Luke 2:11; Ps. 107:13-16; 146:7-8; Isa. 9:6; Matt. 4:16; Luke 1:35; 4:18-19; Col. 1:13-14
