Twelve Days of Christmas – 6th Day – Dec. 30th – JOY

TwelveDays-Slide76For this the Sixth Day of Christmas, Dec. 30th, the key theological word is JOY.  Not surprisingly, the opening music is Joy to the World, first published by the prolific hymn-writer Isaac Watts in 1719 A.D. as a song about the Second Coming, in this case played on modern electronic instruments.   Joy to the World is Hymn No. 38 in the St. Chrysostom Hymnal, arranged to the tradition tune, Antioch, from a hymnal published in 1926 A.D.

The Twelve Days of Christmas video series is a celebration of key theological words or phrases, one each for the twelve days beginning on Christmas Day and ending of Epiphany Eve, Jan. 5th.  It has no connection whatsoever with the silly song of the same name.

Watch the Video.    Listen to the Podcast version.

The Key Word for tomorrow, Dec. 31st, is Family.
