Who is the Unknown

Then who is the Unknown
Who answers for our fear
As if it were His own,
So that we reply
Till the day we die:
“No, I don’t know why,
But I’m glad I’m here?”

from Auden’s For the Time Being, A Christmas Oratorio, The Vision of the Shepherds, Part II.

Merry Christmas, friends.

I’m glad you’re here.
