hear the angels sing

Sunday, December 18, 2011

My favorite traditional Christmas carol is It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, and that’s the song that is ringing in my heart during these sad past few days. It really has seemed like there is just so much heartache this year in particular. Death, illness, family break-ups; it is a crushing, crushing load.
This is the verse in particular that’s been in my heart:

O ye beneath life's crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow;
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing;
Oh rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.

I’m praying for rest beside the weary road this Christmas season for those I know, for those I don’t know. During days when the glad and golden hours seem far off, I have peace that they are coming.
Jesus is coming.
Peace will reign.
Love will win.
