turn your heart into a cow-stall

Popular quotation from Angelius Silesius (1624-1677):

If you could turn your heart into a cow-stall,
Christ would be born again on earth!

And also from his work The Cherubinean Wanderer:

Had Christ a thousand times,
Been born in Bethlehem,
But not in thee, thy sin
Would still thy soul condemn.
