‘The Holly and the Ivy’

I have to go out and try to finish my Christmas shopping, but first a hymn: The Holly and the Ivy, sung by Mediaeval Baebes. I hope this old, old carol will get you in the mood to ask for more.

And please don’t anybody fall into the trap of thinking that any of the beauties of the natural world–holly, ivy, deer, a crisp clear winter morning–are anything but witnesses to the glory, the goodness, the wisdom, and the love of the God who created them. The only God–who sent His only begotten Son into this world in the flesh, Jesus Christ the Son of God… to save it.
