“The Work of Christmas” by Howard Thurman 

When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone,

When the Magi and elders are home, 

When the shepherds are back with their flock,

 The work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, To heal the broken,

To feed the hungry, To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations,

To bring peace among all peoples, To make music in the heart.

“Do not be afraid, for behold, I proclaim to you great joy which will be to the entire universe,” (Lk 2:10, Aramaic Bible in Plain English)
