When the song of the angels is stilled (Rev. Howard Thurman, 1899-1981).

Let the work of Christmas begin and let us begin it together!

”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.”

  • The poem The Work of Christmas is from Howard Thurman’s The Mood of Christmas and Other Celebrations.
