Christmas Day!


"I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” was written on December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), the famous American poet, was saddened by the horrors of this conflict, for "hate seemed overstrong at the moment." His son, who was serving as a lieutenant in the Union Army at the time, had just been wounded.

When Longfellow heard the Christmas bells ringing, he came to the realization, from the depths of his despair, that

"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep."

He believed that God was powerful enough to overcome the world's strife, and that one day He would bring peace and good will to earth.


I heard the bells on Christmas day December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height. Their old familiar carols playAnd mild and sweet the words repeat,Of peace on earth, good will to men.


I thought how as the day had come, December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height. The belfries of all ChristendomHad roll'd along th' unbroken songOf peace on earth, good will to men.


And in despair I bow'd my head: December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height. "There is no peace on earth," I said,"For hate is strong, and mocks the songOf peace on earth, good will to men.”


Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height. "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,With peace on earth, good will to men."


'Til ringing, singing on its way, December 25, 1863, when the American Civil War was at its height. The world revolved from night to day,A voice, a chime, a chant sublime…

…Of peace on earth, good will to men!


“Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”Isaiah 2:4


MERRY shall they learn war anymore.”

CHRISTMAS!

May the Prince of Peace fill your heart with His Peace that transcends all understanding!
