Busy with our Christmas mirth--
Decorations, fests galore--
We don't hear of peace on earth
Nor forgiveness evermore.
Trapped within the Christmas rush--
Cards to send and gifts to buy--
We forget to feel the hush
After angels sing on high.
Listen to the shepherds run!
Feel the midnight air so raw
As they worship God's own Son.
Watch in wonder...Bow in awe.
When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger.
--Luke 2:15-16 ESV
