When Life left His home in Heaven to bring joy and peace to earth, He became a pilgrim without a place in which to be born. Mary and Joseph found their way to a stable and cave where in the midst of the night He was born and homage paid:
Every creature by you made
on your birthday homage paid:
angels lent you hymn of praise,
heaven the star with silver rays,
wise men incense, myrrh and gold.
Shepherds wonder manifold,
beasts the manger, earth the cave;
we the Virgin Mother gave.
Born so that mankind could find a way home.
