Do You Hear What I Hear

Dear Parishioners,

I can’t remember when I first heard it, but Christmas would somehow not be the same if I didn’t hear that sentimental carol, “Do You Hear What I Hear.”
Said the night wind to the little lamb,
  Do you hear what I hear?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
  Do you hear what I hear?
The carol continues with numerous questions about what possibly can be heard in this season of expectation and wonder. It ends with an affirmation about the coming of the Christ child. With broad chords and all voices singing in parts, the carol affirms in an explosion of confidence, “He will bring us goodness and light!”
