It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

During this season, I often think of my favorite Christmas carol as I reflect upon the light of Christ. The carol is, “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.” This Christmas carol was originally written as a poem, by Edmund Sears. Sears was a minister who struggled with depression. The words joyfully declare:

It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold; ‘Peace on the earth, good will to men From heaven’s all-gracious King’– The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing.

The lyrics of the song encourage us to focus on the golden, illuminating presence of God, to cast out the darkness in our lives, as we welcome the glorious presence of Christ. Dear ones, know that no matter how dark our situations may appear, He is the greatest and most perfect of all loves. Why? Because He gave up His own life to rescue us from sin, death, and darkness. Halleluiah! 

“Peace on the earth, good will to all, from heaven’s all-gracious King.” Merry Christmas!
