Advent 2015 reflections

Hush and hear the love song

The annunciation, Henry Ossawa Tanner

The annunciation, Henry Ossawa Tanner

And man, at war with man, hears not
    The love song which they bring; – 
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
    And hear the angels sing!
It came upon the midnight clear (excerpt)
