Compassion Wednesday: Repost – A Hope That Never Fails

Christmas Bells – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (and Casting Crowns)

Christmas Bells

I Heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

I don’t usually repost my own content, and in a way I’m still not because I didn’t write any of this, but I thought we could all use a jolt of hope. In the midst of deep despair and a world that was falling apart around him, Longfellow remembered the hope that never fails.

My hope does not lie in the things of this world, but in the one to come. No, not even in that, but in a person. My hope lies in Christ Jesus, and I know that despite a world that seems to crumble around me, what he has promised me will never fail. Never.

So, enjoy some Christmas music. I pray that the hope in this song and in this poem will warm you on the coldest nights.
