Hark!


Ethereal beauty, ephemeral yet eternal;
The Herald Angels sing softly, echoing;
Touching lightly upon the World below -
Such beauty that brings an annunciation: 
Of Peace;
Of Comfort;
Of Rescue and Redemption;
Of a Present God Proximate and Incarnate.

Earthly beauty, eternal yet ephemeral;
The Shepherds of the Night-Watch sing;
The sight before them fills them with Joy -
Such beauty that brings an exclamation:
Of Peace;
Of Comfort;
Of Rescue and Redemption;
Of a Present God Proximate and Incarnate.

Explode in song you Broken and Forgotten!
The Lord is collecting His Little Lost Ones;
The Lord is paying off all your old Debts;
The Lord has rolled up His sleeves to work -
So the world'll know Restoration and Re-Creation.
