Kerst: de os en de ezel

Zo, hebben de dieren in de stal ook een rolletje in het kerstverhaal…

The Nativity

Among the oxen (like an ox I’m slow)                                                                                                 I see a glory in the stable grow                                                                                                   Which, with the ox’s dullness might at length                                                                                 Give me an ox’s strength.

Among the asses (stubborn I as they)                                                                                                 I see my Saviour where I looked for hay;                                                                                        So may my beastlike folly learn at least                                                                                          The patience of a beast.

Among the sheep (I like a sheep have strayed)                                                                                 I watch the manger where my Lord is laid;                                                                                    Oh that my baa-ing nature would win thence                                                                            Some woolly innocence!

C.S. Lewis
