The Breeze at Bethlehem

By Father John Banister Tabb, 1910.

   I that have lashed the sea
And from the forest torn the rooted tree,
   Come now, my passion spent,
   A lowly penitent,
      Sweet Child, to Thee.

   Alike Thy sovereign will
The strong and weak, O slumbering Babe, fulfil.
   As I before Thee now,
   Shall waves submissive bow
      And storms be still.

The Poetry of Father Tabb (1928) p. 199
