Another little poem from R S Thomas
“Blind Noel” by R.S. Thomas

Christmas with Wesley #2
I think this might be my favourite of Wesley’s Nativity hymns
Nadolig Llawen…Hristos se rodi…Feliz Navidad…Nollaig chridheil huibh…Maligayang Pasko…En frehlicher Grischtdaag…Gledelig Jul…Meri Kirihimete…Linksmu Kaledu…Buone Feste Natalizie…Nodlaig mhaith chugnat…Mele Kalikimaka ame Hauoli Makahiki Hou…Bo Nada…Zalig Kerstfeest…Hyvaa joulua…Gajan Kristnaskon…Zorionak eta Urte Berri On… However you say it, I wish you a very happy Christmas!

Eh Jesus? (Happy Birthday)
