The Meaning of Their Song by Raymond A. Foss

Joining the melody,
swaying in the pew
on the night, silent night
the holy night of the birth
Advent, come down
Christmas at its cusp
singing with the angels
the meaning in their song
almost incomprehensible

God, Love, descending from heaven
into the virgin, God, Christ
born into humanity
humble, servant
in the manger bed
come into the world
to stitch shut the breach
the way from our sin
our darkness
into the loving arms of the father
walking with God once more

The song of the angels
Luke 2:1-20
“the inner workings of the song”,
phrase used by musician Patti Smith to describe
some of what she gains listening to opera star Maria Callas,
Studio 360
