Christmastime is Here

I am writing a hymn to the King born of heavenly seed, the bringer of peace, and the blessed generations covenanted by the holy books, and the infant cry of God, and the stabling under a poor roof of Him who shares heaven with His Father, and about the skies giving birth to a new star, about the hosts of heaven who sang, and about the pagan gods suddenly demolished in their shrines.

~ John Milton, "Elegy 6" (1645)
