All the ycur long the moon glves light, Aud makes n sllver day of uigbt ; lint once a year Slie seems moro nciir, - Bliowa every night her Ktuadiast face, Aial fllls the sky With tranquil grace. 'lis hard to toll wiieii tlay is iloue, i'ur da' uui i'.iglit llow lulo une. So Heavenshfn sa dowovrard 11 the whlle A'Jtl liühts us with its coostmnt smile : Uut once a year II draws more ueur : Wkle open stands tlie shilling door, With gleams of llght nuseen before; And all across üasli gllmpses Meet Oí upper joys and railiaut feet. 'Tis ever so siuce love brokc through, Aud down the wldenlng spacee flew ; Tliat blessed year Our Lord cttuie near ; For Hlm swung back tlie st&rry bound ; Deepeued lar np Üte great proibuud ; All Heaven swept outvvard at hls birth, And naugüt was narrow but the earth! Xow evermore he stands and walts Some ItftiDgof these lOWCT gatcs ; Bnt once ii year Ife wuils iDOfe nt'ar: - Shall the biest door be thrown so wide, And only we the entrence hlde? Unlwrail heartl, make room withiu, And let the holy Chrlstmas in ! Scribner's for January
