IN winter twilights
Under the rain
Christ is walking
By moor and plain.

From east and south
They have driven Him forth,
He finds no home
In the bitter north:

But here in the west,
When day grows dim,
A faithful people
Is waiting Him.

They set a candle
In every home
To shed its light
If the Christ should come.

And none dares turn
The poor away,
For Christ on earth
Was as poor as they.

And if He comes,
What should He find
But the drip of the rain
And the winter wind,

And the love of the poor
Before Him spread,
And the earth made rich
With the sainted dead?

In winter twilights
By moor and plain
In holy Ireland
Christ walks again.
