IN THY DARK STREETS SHINETH.. Virginia Wieringa 2013

This is another part of the series ADVENT STARRY NIGHT that I've been exploring for years. This one is inside Bethelhem and based on the first verse of 'O Little Town of Bethlehem'

"O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light

The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight"


MORNING STARS TOGETHER Virginia Wieringa 2013
I never tire of thinking about the sky on the night Christ was born. As you can see on my website I've already done nine pieces in this series. This one is based on the second verse of  'O Little Town of Bethlehem'

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth

And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to all on earth
