Within the Hush of Morning swells a Song...A Christmas Sonnet of Hope

Within the hush of morning swells a song
Like heavens-bells from citadels above
The Light that breaks the darkest dark has come
As earth receives the majesty of Love

Now hearts that hunger may hunger no more
And cups that once were empty overflow
This is the day of Jesus Christ the Lord
As earth receives the majesty of hope

God gave His only Son so we may live
He died beneath redemption’s blood-stained rod
A Mercy- Gift to all who will believe
As hearts receive the majesty of God

Within the hush of morning swells a song
For heaven’s bells cannot be silent long

  ...For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.  For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son,with whom I am well pleased,”  we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.  And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,  knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.  For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Pet. 1: 16-21


  1. Aha, I see you have corrected it already, won't say anymore. God bless you.

  2. I'm so glad you would tell me if you noticed..wink;) God bless you too!
    I'm always astonished at how often I can proof-read right over blatant errors!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
