when the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with the flocks,
then the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal those broken in spirit,
to feed the hungry,
to release the oppressed,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among all peoples,
to make a little music with the heart
and to radiate light every day in every way
in all that we do and in all that we say.
then the work of Christmas begins.
let the work of Christmas begin, and let it begin in you.
merry christmas to you and yours.
