And as his thoughts wandered back to the night, their mass was to dedicate, he wrote the words "Round yon virgin Mother and Child; Holy Infant so tender and mild. Almost without being aware " of it, his pen was recording his thoughts. Yes that would be it, perhaps his good friend' Franz Gruber could make a tuneo these words and may be his parishioners could sing this new song without the organ music. And Herr Gruber strummed up a little tune for the little song. And that night at mass it was sung for the first time to strumming music of Herr Gruber's guitar. Sleep in heavenly peace. Following the story, Silent Night was sung by the group.

Goldsmith S<pek and Ye Extension Club Shall Find. . Entertained- The Spirit of God came upon Azariah, the Son of Oded, and he weni out to meet Asa, and said to h\m, "Hear me, '• Asa, and all Judaji and Benjamin; The Lord is with you, while you are with him. If you.seek him, he will be found*by you but if you forsake him, he will forsake you." For along time Israel was without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law; but when in their distress, they turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and sought him, hewasfoundby them. In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants qf the lands. Theywerebrokeninpieces naticjn against nation and city against city, - for God troubled theni with every sort of distress. But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work will be rewarded. (2 Chronicles 15: lj-7) God is ever-present, waiting and watching for us to be receptive to His Spirit and love. We may experience trouble on every side and not really understand it all bat as we cleave to God, we find peace replace fear. As we seek God and experience the nearness of His Spirit we are strengthened and encouraged for we kiow that He wiU never forsake his own. We can be assured that His promises are forever true :o those who constantly seek Him; "I will keep that which thou has committed to me; Lo, lam with you always." It is this.as- surar ce that leads us on to walk in the steps of our Lord, Jesus Christ and though we may never see the results of our efforts we live in the hope of a reward of eternal life with our Master.
