UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN, by             Poet's Biography

Last Line: And he, too, whom we have by heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Meynell, Wilfrid, Mrs.; Thompson, Alice Christina

GIVEN, not lent,
And not withdrawn -- once sent,
This Infant of mankind, this One,
Is still the little welcome Son.

New every year,
New born and newly dear,
He comes with tidings and a song,
The ages long, the ages long;

Even as the cold
Keen winter grows not old,
As childhood is so fresh, foreseen,
And spring in the familiar green --

Sudden as sweet
Come the expected feet.
All joy is young, and new all art,
And He, too, Whom we have by heart.
