I heard angels sing last night.
It was a glorious heavenly melody
Under the nighttime stars
and Christmas lights.
The songs were familiar too:
“Hark the Herald angels sing.”
“O little town of Bethlehem.”
The story was familiar too...
about a heavenly choir
come to some shepherds
bringing a message of joy and hope
because of the birth of a special baby to a young woman.
Last night the faces were familiar.
but the message was new:
It was a message of hope and joy
to a sick and tired old lady.
And the angels joined us for tea and cookies.
What a beautiful Christmas gift!
