Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men

A few days ago I was laying in bed listening to some Christmas music while falling asleep and I was struck by this old familiar hymn.  I honestly can’t think of a more timely message for this crazy world we all live in.

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of peace on Earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:

“There is no peace on Earth,” I said,

“For hate is strong and mocks the song

Of peace on Earth, good will to men.”

.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,

With peace on Earth, good will to men.”

I am very grateful for my Savior, especially at this time of year.
