The First Day of Christmas - When The Angels Say Hush

View of the Church of the Nativity 1883
Bethlehem - by Maxim Vorobiev

When The Angels Say: Hush!

 I know we seem busy
I know we seem rushed;
But we settle down
Christmas Eve when

 The Angels say, "Hush!
Peace in the manger
Peace amidst the straw;"
Thus entered the Holiest 
   Only Child the world ever saw.
