The Christmas Spirit
Christmas peace is God's; and
he must give it himiself, with his
own hand, or we shall never get
it. Go then to God himself.
Thou art ills child, as Christmas
day declares; be not afraid to
go unto thy father. Pray to
him; tell hin what thou went
est; say, "Father, I am not mod
erate, reasonable, forbearing. I
fear I cannot keep Christmas
aright, for I have not a peaceful
Christmas spirit in ine ; and I
know that I shall never get it
by thilking, and reading and un
derstanding ; for it passes all
that, and lies far beyond it, does
peace, in the very essence of
thine undivided, ulinoved, abso
lute, eternal Godhead, which no
chainge nor decay of this created
world, nor sin or folly of ien or
devil4, can ever alter, but
which abldeth forever what it
Is, hli perfect. rest, an(] perfect
Ilower tind perfect love.-Kings
