Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
This majestic hymn, and the eternal truths it expresses, are so much more than just another Christmas carol.
As you celebrate the birth of Christ, drink in deeply both the wonderful truth of "God and sinners reconciled" and the fervent prayer:
"Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface; stamp Thine image in its place."
And make your great source of rejoicing to be -- not in presents, food, or even family -- but in "Jesus our Emmanuel" who was "Pleased with us in flesh to dwell."
