Peace on Earth Is Grungy Work by 


Being a guardian angel for planet Earth is grungy work, so hearing bells ring in peaceful celebration
must be very rewarding to them! The center angel lovingly holds an image of our fractured world.

Tragedy and personal loss provided the backdrop for Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s
wonderful carol 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, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will 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, good will 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, good will 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, good will to men!
