Today's great hymn:

People Look East!

1. People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.

2. Furrows, be glad. Though earth is bare,
One more seed is planted there:
Give up your strength the seed to nourish,
That in course the flower may flourish.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the rose, is on the way.

3. Stars, keep the watch. When night is dim
One more light the bowl shall brim,
Shining beyond the frosty weather,
Bright as sun and moon together.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the star, is on the way.

4. Angels, announce with shouts of mirth
Christ who brings new life to earth.
Set every peak and valley humming
With the word, the Lord is coming.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the Lord, is on the way.


Oh, I love this hymn. We sang it at Mass on Sunday, too. It makes me smile because my uncle hates it - he thinks "Love the Bird" is funny - hey, I just noticed you don't have that verse listed. Anyway, I just discovered your blog and thought I'd keep reading - I'm also a mommy and a Catholic... how fitting! Merry Christmas, ladies. :)

I love this one too.

One of my favorites.
