as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah,
“The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough ways made smooth;
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’ ”
Down the High Street this morning
though i suppose it was quite early
The Salvation Army band
had stopped for a break
And even the weather was unseasonably mild.
My companion remarked:
"it doesn't feel like Christmas"
But what does Christmas feel like?
All flesh shall see the salvation of God
What would that look like?
How would it sound?
How would it feel?
