Poem: “Christmas” by St. Augustine of Hippo

Maker of the sun, 
He is made under the sun.

In the Father he remains,
From his mother he goes forth.

Creator of heaven and earth,
He was born on under heaven.

Unspeakably wise,
He is wisely speechless.

Filling the world,
He lies in a manger.

Ruler of the stars,
He nurses at his mother’s bosom.

He is both great in the nature of God
and small in the form of a servant.
