Read CHAPTER V - A CHRISTMAS CAROL of A Little Book for Christmas, free online book, by Cyrus Townsend Brady, on ReadCentral.com.

Christmas Then and Now

      The Stars look down
      On David’s town,
  While angels sing in Winter night;
      The Shepherds pray,
      And far away
  The Wise Men follow guiding light.

      Little Christ Child
      By Mary Mild
  In Manger lies without the Inn;
      Of Man the Son,
      Yet God in One,
  To save the lost in World of Sin.

      Still stars look down
      On David’s town
  And still the Christ Child dwells with men,
      What thought give we
      To such as He,
  Or souls who live in Sin as then?

      Show we our love
      To Him above
  By offering others’ grief to share;
      And Christmas cheer
      For all the year
  Bestow to lighten pain and care.

“The Stars Look Down.”

  The Stars look down
  On David’s town,
  While angels sing in Winter night;
  The shepherds pray,
  And far away,
  The Wise Men follow Guiding light. 
  Little Christ Child,
  By Mary Mild,
  In manger lies without the inn;
  Of Man the Son,
  Yet God in One,
  To save the lost in
  world of sin.

Still stars look down on David’s town And still the Christ Child dwells with men.  What thought give we To such as He, Or souls who live in Sin, as then?  Show we our love To Him above By off’ring others’ grief to share, And Christmas cheer For all the year Bestow to lighten Pain and Care.
