Maybe out of season but …. maybe not!!

Some friends sent me this link last night.  It was a moment from pre-Christmas Washington DC – in one of the many museums there.  (The photo above was taken by those same friends on the balcony of this museum – “The National Air and Space Museum)

Jesus, joy of man’s desiring
Holy wisdom, love most bright

Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned
Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying round Thy throne

Through the way where hope is guiding
Hark, what peaceful music rings
Where the flock, in Thee confiding
Drink of joy from deathless springs
Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure
Theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
In the love of joys unknown
