CHRISTMAS-DAY, 1659.
But art thou come, dear Saviour ? hath thy love
Thus made thee stoop, and leave thy throne above
The lofty Heavens, and thus thyself to dress ...
In dust, to visit mortals? Could no less :
A condescension serve ? And, after all,
The mean reception of a cratch and fall!
Dear Lord, I'll fetch thee thence, I have a room;
'Tis poor, but ’tis my best, if thou wilt come
Within fo fmall a cell, where I would fain
Mine and the World's Redeemer entertain,
I mean my Heart; 'tis nuttish, I confess;
And will not mend thy lodging, Lord, unless
Thou send before thy harbinger, I mean
Thy pure and purging Grace, to make it clean,
And sweep its nasty corners; then I'll try'
To wash it also with a weeping eye: .
And when 'tis swept and washt, I then will go,
And with thy leave I'll fetch foine Aowers that grow
In thine own garden, Faith, and Love to thee;
With thofe. I'll dress it up, and these shall be
My rosemary and bays. Yet when my best
Is done, the room's not fit for such a guest.

But here's the cure, thy presence, Lord, alone
Will make a stall a court; a cratch a throne. ,,

Of glorious Angels, did come down among
His earthly cottagers, and did enshrine,
In veil of flesh, his Majesty divine.
