A star shone down on quiet fields,
Lo, many years ago,
To tell men that the light of Truth
Was there to heal earth’s woe.

That light of Truth still shines today,
In spite of hate and greed,
To comfort, heal, and strengthen men
And ever meet their need.

So at this holy Christmastide
Let each one pause to pray
That men will open wide their thought
To see this light today.

From the December 25, 1943 Christian Science Sentinel

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
— Luke 2:11
"The star that looked lovingly down on the manger of our Lord, lends its resplendent light to this hour: the light of Truth, to cheer, guide, and bless man as he reaches forth for the infant idea of divine perfection dawning upon human imperfection, — that calms man's fears, bears his burdens, beckons him on to Truth and Love and the sweet immunity these bring from sin, sickness, and death."
— Mary Baker Eddy
