242. Love Came Down at Christmas

1
Love came down at Christmas, Love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas; star and angels gave the sign.

2
Worship we the Godhead, Love incarnate, Love divine;
worship we our Jesus, but wherewith for sacred sign?

3
Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine;
love to God and all men, love for plea and gift and sign.
