Love Alone

Mosaic of the Three Magi, Sant'Apollinare Nuovo in Ravenna, Italy

Love Alone

The Child we seek
doesn’t need our gold.
On love, on love alone
he will build his kingdom.
His pierced hand will hold no sceptor,
his haloed head will wear no crown;
his might will not be built
on your toil.
Swifter than lightning
he will soon walk among us.
He will bring us new life
and receive our death,
and the keys to his city
belong to the poor.

~ Gian Carlo Menotti
