The Work

Continuing to observe the Octave of Christmas with poetry:

The Work of Christmas

by Howard Thurman

“When the song of the angels is stilled,

When the star in the sky is gone,

When the kings and princes are home,

When the shepherds are back with their flock,

The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,

To heal the broken,

To feed the hungry,

To release the prisoner,

To rebuild the nations,

To bring peace among brothers,

To make music in the heart.”

— The Mood of Christmas, 23
