t No great symphony or composition can match the Song of
Christmas. It rises above the clatter and roar of the city; it
throbs through the scattered town and hamlet; it sings through
the sunlit islands of the South; it permeates the frozen wastes ^ ]

the slumbering chords of memory; it heals old hurts and scars;
; it binds loved ones in a closer and deeper tie. There are no
