Longfellow's Christmas

I've always loved "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day". In fact, I believe it is my mother's favorite. But I never knew the story behind it until two years ago when the talented Edward Herrmann recited Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I'll never be able to sing or listen to this Christmas hymn again without weeping.
