Lessons and Carols, 2017


SWU Division of Fine Arts

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.” (Matthew 28:18)

Our Division of Fine Arts puts on one of the best Lessons and Carols in the Upstate region, and this year is no exception. On behalf of our Southern Wesleyan University community and our staff at Freedom’s Hill Primer, we wish all of our readers and viewers a very happy Christmas season.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.” 
(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”)

And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One! (Charles Dickens, from A Christmas Carol)
