• How silently, how silently The wonderous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of his heaven. No ear may hear his coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive him still, The dear Christ enters in.

    Phillips Brooks, H. L. S., L. H. S. (1892). “Phillips Brooks Year Book: Selections from the Writings of the Rt. Rev. Phillips Brooks”
