And welcome to First Line Fridays, hosted by Hoarding Books!!!
Since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line.
Today, I’m detouring from books (for the briefest of moments – nobody panic!) and taking a look at my favorite lines from Christmas hymns. I love just about every Christmas song, carol, and hymn but especially after the rough year we’ve had I’m really treasuring the hymns and religious songs right now. ♥
One such hymn is “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”, originally written by Charles Wesley.
And my favorite verse is:
“Hail the Heav’nly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and Life to All he brings,
Ris’n with Healing in his Wings.
Mild he lays his Glory by,
Born—that Man no more may die,
Born—to raise the Sons of Earth,
Born—to give them Second Birth.”
Let me know your favorite line from a Christmas hymn OR the first line of the book closest to you & then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!
