Good King Wenceslas Christmas Program

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the Feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel

When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel.

We're all familiar with the carol, but what does it have to do with the message of Christ's birth? Is it a beneficial song include in a Christmas worship service?

Good King Wenceslas (It’s all about Mercy) is a children’s Christmas program available from the LCMS. Written by the Rev. Bernhard Seter in formats for use by Sunday schools or Lutheran parochial schools, the program is offered as free pdf downloads.
