Hungry Hearts Seek Sacred Sign


Cathedral choirs confident sing,

church brass bells joyous ring,

holy hymnal hope proclaimed:

search for stable, gospel-famed.


Hungry hearts seek sacred sign,

candle glow, godly wine;

strong brass eagle, wingspan wide,

organ pipes proclaim with pride.


Pagan tree, bauble-hung,

hallowed all hosannas sung,

red the berry, serrated leaf,

plum pudding follows spiced beef.


Festive food, extra chairs,

presents wrapped with extra care;

train travel, plane or car

kith and kin from near and far.


What your hope this advent time?

Tell me yours, I’ll tell you mine:

grip blessed book, recite holy verse,

fully-neutered, serpent’s curse.
