Tonight a Barn is Chosen

Christmas-StarTonight a barn is chosen—
Harbors heaven’s highest gift,
Gold spun into straw to soften
Mundane world that sheds a tear.

Tonight, the bright star shines,
Awakens dark sky with eternal light.
Holy Night’s bright glow upon all who dwell in dark,
Overcomes distrust and doubt with love and hope.

Tonight, simple stall becomes this day a holy shrine
Whose every stone cries out for Peace—
May new babe grow to become our passioned fire,
Who wakes and warms our souls throughout cold Night.
