Oh Holy Night

Oh Holy Night!
The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviors birth!

Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared 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 angels voices!
Oh night divine!  Oh night when Christ was born!

and from the third verse of
Oh Little Town of Bethlehem:

How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His Heaven.

No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.


May your hearts be filled with the
imparted on that very first Christmas night!

~ Merry Christmas ~

"Where meek souls will receive Him still, The dear Christ enters in." This has been my prayer this Christmas season. O Holy Night, indeed. Beautiful post.
