Day 10: It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
Lyrics: "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear"
The Baptist Hymnal (1991): #93
Questions for though and discussion:
1. Not everyone listens to the angels (or believes them) right away. Zechariah didn't! He received a sign all right: muteness. I think we like to believe that if an angel appeared and spoke to us, that is all the convincing we would need, but can you think of some reasons we are tempted to ignore the Holy Spirit's voice? Isn't He greater than the angels?
2. At some point in the future "every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea" will praise God. This is the basis for the 4th verse. What do you think that will look like? Sound like? Do you think it will just be singing?
