Let the Work of Christmas Begin

January 18, 2016
FOCUS ON THE VISION
DENISE WALTON


By Dr. 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.

Taken from “The Work of Christmas” in The Mood of Christmas & Other Celebrations (1985)
