Peace-Hope-Joy... This

Should cares of life
And tares of strife
And shares of gray and gold
Cause us to fret
And then forget
The blessings that we hold

Should mortal fear
And morbid tear
And lords of want and woe
Blind Surety
By what we see
Rather than what we know

Should giving up
Become the cup
That tortures our thirst
Then we should pause
And pray, because
God loves us, loved us first

Then, in this flight
Of morn to night
In spite of trouble’s fuss
Pray we know this;
Peace-hope-joy is
The love of God in us

Oh, let the Reason for this season
Descend from above
 To light our way from day to day
With peace, hope, joy and love

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

Luke 2:10-15
