Johann C. H. Rink


As each happy Christ­mas
Dawns on earth again,
Comes the ho­ly Christ Child
To the hearts of men.

Enters with His bless­ing
Into ev­ery home,
Guides and guards our foot­steps,
As we go and come.

All un­known, be­side me,
He will ev­er stand,
And will safe­ly lead me
With His own right hand.
