Hail, hail the word made flesh, The Babe the Son of Mary.

The other day, as I was just waking up, I said, “Merry Christmas, Lord!”  It was a quirky thing to do.  I had never wished Jesus a merry Christmas.  The things one does when half-awake!

Quite unexpectedly, the Lord replied!  He said, “I Am Christmas.”  True enough, right?  So a merry Christmas to all of you from Christmas Himself.

Hail, hail the Word made flesh!  The babe, the Son of Mary (from “What Child Is This”)
