A CHRISTMAS THOUGHT, by            
First Line: Christ jesus was born in a stable
Last Line: And with him forever abide.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Christ Jesus was born in a stable--
A birthplace of humblest degree,
So that no one could say, "I am poorer,
More lacking in comforts, than He."

His mother in swaddling bands wrapped Him,
The wardrobe of One, the Divine,
That no one could say of His raiment,
"Christ's garments were better than mine."

His home and His comforts were borrowed--
No pillow for resting His head!
But He lived, and He suffered and sorrowed,
To give us true comforts instead.

In glory His wealth had been boundless!
He laid all those riches aside,
That we might have riches eternal,
And with Him forever abide.
