The Work of Christmas.
When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and the princess are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the bridges,
To bring peace among brothers and sisters ,
To make music in the heart.
The music of hope and healing and happiness
The poem “The Work of Christmas” is from Howard Thurman’s The Mood of Christmas and Other Celebrations
