From the December 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Sweetness of nativity,
the quiet growth,
the heart preparing,
focusing identity,
adjustment to a life of sharing—

Was this the glow that Mary felt
when she had her angel vision?
Did she thrill to know the child,
to learn the greatness of his mission?

Dear Christ, never born nor dying,
now appearing,
saving, freeing,
gentle dawn of light within me!
Joy to know thee fills my being.
