Each of the 12 days of Christmas, a favorite line or two of mine from a Christmas carol will come your way to remind you of these joyful, hopeful carols that help carry us through the year.
Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
(Words: Charles Wesley, 1734; Music: Felix Mendelssohn, 1840)
Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
late in time behold him come,
off-spring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the God-head see;
hail th'incarnate Deity,
pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
