Another selection from Sandra, and a great choice it is. I have posted two very different approaches but both are very powerful in their own right. Hope you enjoy both I certainly did.

  1. I certainly enjoyed them as well, Gerry. The poem itself is one of my favorites. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote it in 1863. We were in the midst of the Civil War, and he was watching the nation that his own grandfather’s generation had brought to birth struggling to barely survive. He had recently lost his beloved wife in a fire that destroyed their home. When he wrote that last two stanzas, he was writing words that he could write only by faith. What he saw and heard around him gave no evidence of the fact that God was alive or that right would prevail. But by faith he knew that both things were true, and he wrote the words that have encouraged generations of other men and women to keep believing when there was no evidence except God’s Word. To me it is the one Christmas song that is most relevant to today’s generation. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Thank you for this detailed information, making this song even more worthwhile and enjoyable. A Christmas song with reason and meaning, brill’… thank you Sandra…
