a timely word

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I wonder if I’ve sung every traditional Advent hymn and Christmas carol thousands of times.

And yet as overdone and all-too-familiar as they can feel, the words still occasionally pierce the numbing cloud. This year these ones did it for me:

Wise men leave your contemplations!
Brighter visions shine afar;
Seek in him the hope of nations
You have seen his rising star.
Come and worship, Christ the new born King;
Come and worship, worship Christ the new born King.

Timely — especially for someone who finds it so easy to get wrapped up in my own contemplations…
