Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart… filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.
~Bess Streeter Aldrich
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
This Christmas Eve day and night, dear friend…
Let us wrap up all the bustle,
Be conscious of Heavenly song falling over our hearts
Let it surround us, as a warming shawl,
Remember the One who sent His Son to give Himself away,
Light candles of praise and hope and His Glory within
Then raise them high with hymn
… to sing with the angels!
