The Real Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled;
when the star in the sky is gone;
when the wise men have gone home;
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
then, the real work of Christmas begins.

find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nation,
to bring peace among peoples,
to make music in the heart!

Adapted from the prayer,
Work of Christmas Begins
by Howard Thurman
