The joyful shepherds
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".
