    God rest you merry, gentlemen,
    Let nothing you dismay,
    For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
    Was born upon this day,
    To save us all from Satan’s power
    When we were gone astray.
    O tidings of comfort and joy!
    For Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
    Was born on Christmas Day.
    —Dinah Maria Mulock Craik (1826–1887)

    If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
