They that are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD,
but such as are upright in their way are his delight.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
I heard the bells on Christmas day their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
I thought how, as the day had come, the belfries of all Christendom had rolled along th’ unbroken song of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
And in despair I bowed my head: “There is no peace on earth,” I said. “For hate is strong, and mocks the song of peace on earth, goodwill to men.”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth, goodwill to men:”
Till, ringing, singing on its way, the world revolved from night to day, a voice, a chime, a chant sublime, of peace on earth, goodwill to men!
