My Christmas Wish
I’ve wished a very special wish
      For you this Christmas-tide;
    It reaches far beyond today, 
      ’Tis high and deep, and wide. 

    I wish for you the angels’ song
      That tells of hope and love;
    I wish the radiance of the Star
      To guide your thoughts above. 

    I wish for you the sturdy faith
      That led the Wise Men three
    Through cold of night, o’er desert drear, 
      The Holy Child to see. 

    I wish for you a humble heart, 
      With purpose strong and true—
    The blessing of the Christ, our Lord—
      This is my wish for you. 
—Edward Bos
