Carols At The Capitol

On Saturday Carols at the Capitol took place in many capitols across our nation.  As we entered the capitol here in Kansas on Saturday, we prayed that the Lord would be glorified in our praises.  The brass ensemble began as a call to worship. It rang throughout the beautiful Rotunda graced by a gorgeous Christmas Tree.  Slowly people began to gather, and other visitors looked on as our gathering began.  Children, wonderful beautiful children came with their parents, we prayed and we worshipped through the wonderful Christmas Carols. The one that stands out to me is,

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day.” As we sang the verse, “and in despair, I bowed my head: There is no peace on earth, I said, for hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth good will toward men.” But …”Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth he sleep,the wrong shall fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth good will to men.  What a declaration!
