This ornament easily brings a tune to my mind.
Oh, the Hallelujah chorus!
Just to think of the future reign of Christ on earth.
We heard parts of the Messiah twice this year.
Once at the local college
and once down in Greenville.
The news can get discouraging.
Corruption and incompetent decisions abound.
But I am thankful for the supreme potentate -
the King of Kings -
the one whose birth we celebrate during the season.
He rules today, but one day every knee will bow to him.
One day, he will depose all others.
One day, we will be in a perfect kingdom.
