The Sounds of Christmas

I have been following a couple of Bible reading plans at One is called “Sounds of Christmas.” It incorporates scripture, music video and the lyrics of Christmas songs. Reading through “Oh, Holy Night,” I was struck by the meaningful beauty of the second verse:

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.

O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.

I hope that you are warmed by His light this sad weekend, and may He guide us all through our trials.
