By Inadvertent Request, ‘The Light Has Come Into the World’

In an email celebrating this Christmas Day, Phoebe said, “The light has come into the world!” and wondered if it could be the title of a hymn. As it turns out, it is! And here it is–The Light Has Come Into the World, sung by a mini-choir at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church.

Meanwhile, our Christmas Carol Contest is still on, folks, albeit in its last day. Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner, who will receive an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, as soon as it comes off the press. So if you want to enter, today’s your last chance.

But we will continue to post Christmas hymn requests for as long as we keep getting them.

    Ah, so there really is such a hymn. As I told Lee, the sanctuary at church this morning was ablaze with lights — on the trees, on wreaths, all around the creche, everywhere. And something kept singing in my mind: “The Light has come into the world.”

    And we know that the darkness will never overcome it.
