FROM THE ARCHIVES: A SMALL, ROUGH, UNSIGHTLY BOX:

The Littlest Angel (Charles Tazewell)

And the voice of God spoke, saying: Of all the gifts of all the angels, I find that this small box pleases me the most. Its contents are of the earth and of men, and my Son is born to be king of both. These are the things my Son, too, will know and love and cherish and then, regretfully, will leave behind him when his task is done. I accept this gift in the name of the child, Jesus, born of Mary this night in Bethlehem.

I have been reading this aloud to kids since 1960, and I still choke up on that paragraph!
