At the turning point of time
The true Light of the World
entered the ways of our earthly life.
Darkness of night
had held its sway.
Day-radiant light
streamed into human souls:
Light that gives warmth
to simple shepherds’ hearts,
Light that enlightens
the wise heads of kings.

O Light Divine,
O Sun of Christ,
Warm thou our hearts,
Enlighten thou our heads,
That good may become
What from our hearts we found
And from our heads direct
With single purpose of will.


A Christmas meditation by Rudolph Steiner
