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 neighbor, love for plea and gift and sign.
