The bell tolls

The final candle flares to life on the Advent wreath

It’s time

The bell tolls

People leave their homes and head toward the house of God

Their hearts are full of joy

The bell tolls

The doors open wide for all the people

Music sounds and voices lift in song

The bell tolls

The seats are filled 

The people wait in anticipation  

The bell tolls

The clock ticks over, light blazes out

And the darkness retreats before it

It’s time

It’s Christmas Day

God is with us
