O Holy Night. . .
The stars are brightly shining. . .
It is the night of our Dear Savior's birth!!!
Long lay the world. . .
In sin and error pining. . .
Till He arrived and the soul felt its worth!!
A thrill of hope. . .
the weary world rejoices. . .
for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!!!
Fall on your knees. . .
Oh hear the angel voices. . .
Oh night Divine. . .
Oh night. . .when Christ was born!!
That's my favorite Christmas carol. . .EVER!!
The second verse, which I don't hear often goes on to say
"led by the Light of faith serenely beaming. .
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand"
I hope that your hearts are glowing as we celebrate His birth this year.
We have baked, and played, we have sang carols to the babe, and have listened to the Christmas story, we have sipped cocoa, and enjoyed the Christmas lights in our town.
Our stockings are hung. .the milk and sugar cookies have been carefully selected and placed where Santa won't miss them. . .and their heads are nestled while visions of a joyous Christmas dance in their heads.
The house is warm. . .and snug. . .and peacefully and serenely quiet. . .
My mind is clearing and breathing deep. . .
and I am thankful!!
I am thankful for that 'thrill of hope'
For yonder. .breaks a NEW and GLORIOUS morn!!
Blessings to you all!
From my family to yours. . .
Wishing you and yours a VERY merry Christmas. .
