Keywords: religious art; women; figures; poetry; Christmas

Commentary: The inclusion of a Christmas song seems inappropriate for a Spring magazine. The date on the carol by Wilson, who was minister of Bath Street United Presbyterian Church, would suggest that it was written for a performance in December 1894.
