To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

One Other Song

I cry every time I hear the Hallelujah chorus.

King of kings, and Lord of lords,
King of kings, and Lord of lords,
And Lord of lords,
And He shall reign,
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings, forever and ever,
And Lord of lords,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
And He shall reign forever and ever,
King of kings! and Lord of lords!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
It is such a beautiful declaration of the reign of Christ.
Last week Rob posted some music video clips and one of them was a choral group singing the Hallelujah in Macy's...this morning I came across this one done in a mall food court and it's pretty amazing. Well worth the time to listen.

WOW. Makes me wish I could sing! Lovely, just lovely. What a sweet and unexpected reminder to those who may have forgotten just what it is we celebrate this time of year. Great post, Marty. Thanks.
