This tiny card reads: "Touch me with a gentle hand, Read me twice and ready me slowly, truths too deep to understand, Only through the Spirit Holy,  Sparkle like a Seraphs wing, Through my momentous Christmas story, He, not only was a King, But th' Eternal King of glory,  Who for thee a Vile was rated, Bruised, and cursed, and immolated!" Francis Davis
