Christmas EvenSong: Stars Tell

The following is a Christmas Eve Gift to all of my friendsacross the world. It is my hope that it gives birth to stars of hope within you, as bright as any star that shon that night our Story turned.

A chant melody accompanies this, but I am unable to record it at this time. For now, the Christmas evensong lyrics are the gift to you.

Stars Tell
A Christmas EvenSong
Dan Wilt        

Stars tell

An ancient rhyme

To children’s ears

Who listen hard

For voices swift

Aloft on wings

To whisper truth

To shout the word

That stills the fear

That breaks the lock

That lifts the veil

That holds us all

That fight the hate

That warms the heart

That bleeds the blood

The wine of life

That breaks the bread

That life renews

That gives us all

Our name and home

Among the stars

Who speak this night.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
