The Music of Christmas

The Music of Christmas
By: Megan Easley-Walsh
December 2014 

In the stillness of the morning
Comes the dawning of the bells
In the quiet of all nature
The nightingale begins to tell

There is music in all of Christmas
from the branches of each tree
Here below, where angels trod
And where sheep bow on bended knee

In the silence of each whisper
In the hope of each bell’s tune
There is more than notes of longing
As the owl greets the loon

In the singing of the choir
In the bright lights red and green
There is music in each moment
There is more than eyes have seen

Listen for the songs of Christmas
In your heart and in your day
Listen for the joys here gathered
Here is where true peace will stay
