Christmas Eve Sing-Along

(for hour 11—holiday prompt from hour 10)


Christmas Eve Sing-Along


Sleigh bells ring

I’m listening

to deep, soulful chimes

of handbells near the dais

where the harpist strums

and the little drummer boy


with a glance to the director

for her smile of approval

even when he misses a beat

His performance isn’t for her

or me

or angelic voices joining the chorus

or the crowd warmed after snowy drives in the dark

or even his mom smiling gleefully from the front pew

This lifting of voices

of notes

of harmonies

of joy to the rafters and beyond

is for the Creator who so loved us

that He gave His only begotten Son

that whosoever should believe in Him

should not perish, but have eternal life
