The Baker's Carol

Pale white dough, soft as a lamb,

Remind us of a shepherd man,

Who heard the angels singing up above him

Left his flocks on yonder hill

As the sky with glory filled

Ran to tell the Baby that we love Him

 

Plump, golden loaves

Sweet, raisin-gemmed

Remind us of the three wise Men

With turbans high and gifts proffered before Him

‘Twas bread He broke to match the wine

To symbolize His love divine

He gave His life, O come let us adore Him!

 

Five little loaves and some small fish

Made a more than ample dish

For thousands in the Master’s loving hands

So when we trust for every crust

That He provides, rejoice we must:

He hungered, too, and truly understands.

 

When dough, punched down, then seems to die,

Remember when the Savior, high,

Upon the cross died, too, ‘mid cruel scorning.

Yet yeast, miraculous and humble,

Like faith, though it did seem to stumble

Does rise again, like Him, on Easter morning.
