25 Poems of Christmas: December 17

Happy Birthday to me... with something short and sweet by Chesterton.

Cradle Song
G K Chesterton

Ah, dearest Jesus, Holy Child,
Make thee bed, soft, undefiled
Within my heart, that it may be
A quiet chamber, kept for Thee.
My heart for very joy does leap
My lips no more can silence keep,
I must sing with joyful tongue
That sweetest ancient cradle song.
