We’re So Poor, draft no. 5

 So that’s it.

That’s my present.

Were you hoping there was more?

It’s not that he is stingy,

It’s just that we’re so poor

That we did not know just what

The baby was for.

O come, let us adore him

O come, let us adore

O come, let us

O come, let

O come




Please know you are most welcome

through our doors.

We had to make them higher

And much lower to the floor

To fit in all your glory

And your stable

And your roar.

We have never had a guest like you
