Sounds of Christmas

“Sounds of Christmas,” Friend, Dec. 1984, 39

Sounds of Christmas

Do you hear the sounds of Christmas

In a candle’s flickering light,

In the murmuring and crackling

Of a fireplace burning bright,

In the whisper of a snowflake

Drifting downward in moonlight?

They’re sounds of quiet, sounds of peace—

Echoes of that holy night.
