I have heard his baby laughter In a different time and place, And when I held a newborn child I felt his breath upon my face. In the night I’ve heard him crying; I have seen his streaming tears Upon the cheeks of hungry children Who were cold and full of fears. I have seen the infant Jesus And have marveled at his birth, For there is evidence of him In all the children of the earth. By Sarah Miller
