An Old Song of Peace and Joy

Listening to Christmas music. Julie Andrews popped up on Pandora today singing “Silent Night” and I paused in my day and felt genuinely happy. While listening to these songs I think of folks out there who don’t know the true hope that Christmas really is and I wish so badly I could convince them. I wish so badly that the words to Silent Night would resonate in their hearts and minds so that they would know that there is a hope to hold onto. There is a hope, a joy, a peace, a love; all of which came to earth in the form of a baby. I was talking to Mathilda the other day about Jesus leaving gold, shimmering heaven to come down to earth to be born in a smelly barn, in a pile of smelly hay, amidst of a bunch of smelly animals. Why? Because He loves us. He loves us. Bottom line. There’s hope in that love. A love that is never taken back, but given in abundance. A love that will never run out. He brings my heart joy. Pure indescribable joy.

Silent night, holy night.
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night.
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia.
Christ the Saviour is born.
Christ the Saviour is born.

Silent night, holy night.
Son of God, loves pure Light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace.
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.
