Sounds of Christmas

    “Sounds of Christmas,” Friend, Dec. 1984, 39

    Sounds of Christmas

    Do you hear the sounds of Christmas

    In a candle’s flickering light,

    In the murmuring and crackling

    Of a fireplace burning bright,

    In the whisper of a snowflake

    Drifting downward in moonlight?

    They’re sounds of quiet, sounds of peace—

    Echoes of that holy night.
