“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angle, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.’”
Luke 2:13-14, New International Version

Angels sheathed in heaven’s glory
Angels singing heaven’s story
Shepherds shiver in the night
Fear mixes with delight
Wonder at the sight

Sights and sounds
Dance all around
A Star appearing
Sheep are cheering
Fulfillment nearing

Wisdom’s design
Lowly Place
Now Holy Space
Give pause to life’s race

Time goes by
Centuries fly
People move across history’s stage
Fads, fancies and sundry sophisticates rage
Human emptiness on every page

Our chapter is here
With boldness appear
The Star and the Child
Amidst furies wild
Making tumultuous spirits mild

Sing angels clothed in light
Sing and dance to brighten our night

Can you hear the angel voices?  They are not just for Christmas Eve.  Join your praise with theirs.  Then find a shepherd somewhere and sing out loud!
