Stitching Rotation

I joined a SanMan Originals challenge for the month of January.  This is how far I am with it:

Love the bright Christmas colors.  I wanted to stitch it ever since I first saw it.

Sooooo I am switching back and forth between OPQ from LHN and this one.

Have a wonderful day.
Hope it is blessed.

Everywhere Everywhere Christmas Tonight

My annual post:

A Christmas Carol
Words: Bishop Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)
Source: Phillips Brooks, Christmas Songs and Easter Carols (New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., 1903).
The links to Brooks and Redner open in new windows at an external site.

Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night!
Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine;
Christmas where snow-peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where corn-fields lie sunny and bright;
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in its flight,
Broods o'er brave men in the thick of the fight;
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

For the Christ-child who comes is the Master of all,
No place too great and no cottage too small;
The Angels who welcome Him sing from the height,
"In the city of David, a King in His might."
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

Then let every heart keep its Christmas within
Christ's pity for sorrow, Christ's hatred for sin.
Christ's care for the weakest, Christ's courage for right,
Christ's dread of the darkness, Christ's love of the light.
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

So the stars of the midnight which compass us round
Shall see a strange glory, and hear a sweet sound,
And cry, "Look! the earth is aflame with delight,
O sons of the morning, rejoice at the sight."
    Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas to-night.

(Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), Carol 368
