Look East

I love Christmas Carols. Our family listens to Christmas music all year long. We love Andy Williams, The Carpenters, Nat King Cole, even Charlie Brown’s Christmas. Even in the silly songs like “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” there is the joy of Christmas.

This morning I read a carol that is new to me. It is called “People Look East”

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.

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.

Don’t you love the anticipation? Keep looking for Christ this season, seek Him, and be eager for His returning.
