As Christmas Day slips into Christmas Past, Hallelujah

A hymn has been with me all Christmas day.  Carrying over from the solo performance Christmas Eve at Our Lady of the Springs: 

“O Holy Night

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior's birth

Long lay the world in sin and error-pining

Till he appeared and the soul felt it's worth


The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices

For yonder brinks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees


O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night, O night divine”

With that song in my mind and the verse that has kept me company since earlier this week, Christmas Day now slips into Christmas Past.  And these three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.  (1 Corinthians 13:13) 

Hallelujah, until tomorrow -
