Evangelised what they had seen -
The Babe in the manger.
Magi, when they saw
The little Child with His mother,
Offered homage and treasure.
Rich, little - and ridiculous -
Zaccheus in the sycamore, ardent
To see Jesus.
"Thou hast ... seen him", Jesus said
To the man whose life
Was darkness without Him.
His martyr Stephen saw
- In the face of man's evil -
"The glory of God, and Jesus ..."
Rejoice and do home
That faith envisages "we see Jesus ...
Crowned with glory and honour".
Living in this hope, cleanse yourself -
"For we shall see him
As he is".
