Welcome All Wonders in One Sight

Welcome, all wonders in one sight!

Eternity shut in a span!

Summer in winter, day in night!

Heaven in earth, and God in man!

Great little One! Whose all-embracing birth

Lifts earth to heaven, stoops heaven to earth. . .

To Thee, meek Majesty! Soft King

Of simple graces and sweet loves:

Each of us his lamb will bring,

Each her pair of silver doves;

Till burnt at last in fire of Thy fair eyes,

Ourselves become our own best sacrifice.

- Richard Crashaw "A Hymn as Sung by the Shepherds"
