The original title for this short poem was simply 'Christmas' – here I have taken the last line as a more interesting title. The text tells, in short lines, of the traditional images surrounding the birth of Jesus.

The poem is variously credited to Mary I., or Mary I. Osborn, of whom nothing is known, although one or two poems appear on the internet.

Little Lord of Light was written for conductor Susanna Saw and Kuala Lumpur Children’s Choir. The choir has performed several pieces of mine, and I had the pleasure of working with them in 2010.
