Joyful Noise

“Hark the herald angels sing

Glory to the new born King

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled

Joyful all ye nations rise

Join the triumph of the skies

With angelic host proclaim

Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark the herald angels sing

Glory to the new born king!”

 

Charles Wesley

Dancing

” You have turned for me my mourning into dancing:

You have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness. 

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You, and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.”

Psalm 30:11-12

I’ve Learned

Weeping may endure for a night

and I’ve learned that the night

can be very long...

but then, I remember

that even though it’s darkest before dawn,

“Joy comes in the morning”

And for that, I can hold on.”

-Faith Carr
