The Work of Christmas Begins (Howard Thurman)
When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and the princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.
Here are the words in music – to hear in a different and deeper more heartfelt way.
After the holidays and the celebration and the busyness of the season, when life returns to “normal”, the incarnation continues. The incarnation continues through you and me. To be Christ to the world, to one another through who we are, what we say and what we do. To be light. To be love. To somehow in someway find the music in our hearts once again in the day to day routine and be to touched by God, so we can touch the hearts of others so they can make music as well.
