Advent Reflection #21: “I Saw a Stable” by Mary Elizabeth Coleridge

 

I Saw a Stable

I saw a stable, low and very bare,

          A little child in a manger.

The oxen knew Him, had Him in their care,

          To men He was a stranger.

The safety of the world was lying there,

          And the world’s danger.

(Mary Elizabeth Coleridge)
