One Little Hand

Little Hand that ruled the crèche

Reaching out to fondle life

From the straw and simple beasts

Greeting tradesman and his wife.

Little Hand from God come down

Made the trip so whole and hale

Soon to bear religion’s frown

Soon to feel the sledge and nail.

(Note: The juxtaposition of manger and cross we saw back in 1985. The Anderson Farm became a walkabout picture book from Gospel scene to scene, using mannequins, costumes, country props, subtle lighting and piped-in hymns. People came from all around. Evangelism. Little Lauren never forgot the display case with crown of thorns and spikes.)
