The Song of the Angels

To the watching and listening thought of the shepherds came the song of the angels, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." This song compelled the shepherds at once to leave their ordinary routine, their material ways and means; for they said one to another, "Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass." And after that they began to glorify and praise God. We hear no more of these faithful listeners; but we do know that the love and praise of which they became so consious are eternal facts, for the song of the angels did not begin when the shepherds first heard it: the prayer of adortion has ever been the song of the children of God; it is the outburst of joy which acknowledges man's forever existence with God, and recognizes his ability to commune with God throughout all eternity.

It was the uplifted thought of the shepherds which enabled them to become conscious of the glory of God, of peace and good will, those qualities of divine Mind which are ever present and available everywhere. When thought is uplifted to the things of Spirit, these ideas are found to be ever present; for good does not come on certain occasions only, nor does it withdraw when it is seemingly unheeded. God's ideas are always available; and all who are watching and listening daily and hourly for the Christ, Truth, to dawn more fully in their hearts, hear the song of the angels now, and are flooded with the joy and sense of dominion which the adoration and acknowledgment of God's glory bring.
