Holiday Greeting
[Original written in Polish by Wladyslava Anna Jamroz, Translated by Danuta Romanowska]

Let human hearts Be like the
Bethlehem manger When Mary
laid the Holy Child On the hay.

Mary will keep watch so that in our hearts
Jesus will not cry,
And so that the weight of human transgressions
Will not crush the Savior.
