“Human presence is a creative and turbulent sacrament, a visible sign of invisible grace”. John O'Donohue

In the Bleak Midwinter

My most favourite Christmas hymn in the whole world. Words by Christina Rossetti and my preferred tune by Gustav Holst. The last verse gets me every time.

"What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart."
