NB: This gorgeous collection of illustrated Christmas poetry has been re-published in a single volume containing Kevin Carey’s other collections of Christmas poems, and is available in hardback and paperback, entitled All Hail the Glorious Night.

Christmas Carols are one of the most familiar aspects of Christianity, instantly recognisable to church-goers and others alike. Over the years many fine new musical settings have emerged, but the words remain the same. Kevin Carey has been inspired to create a forth anthology of new and vibrant lyric poetry that will delight those eager to renew their Christmas Spirit.

This book is a perfect stocking-filler, containing over 50 poems that guide us through from Advent to Christmas and Epiphany. Scattered throughout the text are illustrations by Kevin Sheehan.

Our joy will bloom when you arrive,
The waiting will be worth the stay
Of revelry not in your name
Until you come on Christmas Day.

KEVIN CAREY is the Chairman of RNIB, the UK’s leading blindness charity, and a Reader in his parish church. He has been a Member of General Synod, and is a chorister, theologian, novelist, and classical music critic.

Never miss a beat.
