Holiday Peace Poem

Esther’s Carol

O, weary women!
O, saddened men!
Join hands and listen
on this Silent Night
beneath the stars.
There is joy in the air
for those who have hearts
to hear the song of peace!

O, church and temple!
O, city square!
Light up the night
and hold us safe.
Unwrap good gifts
of sacred thoughts!
Ring out the news
that you believe!

O, Earth and Sky!
O, Life and Light!
Let love abound
in these troubled days,
that we might see
how we can rise
as sacred selves
in such a time as this!
