ON A SILENT NIGHT

 

                ON A SILENT NIGHT
                WITH A MIDNITE SO CLEAR
                A SHEPHERD TENDING SHEEP
                HEARD VOICES SO DEAR

                GLORIAS WERE RESOUNDING
                FROM ANGELS ON HIGH
                A STAR BRIGHTLY SHINING
                DID HE SUDDENLY SPY

                OVER BETHLEHEM TOWN
                DID IT SEEM TO BE
                SO HE LEFT HIS FLOCK
                FOR THE SIGHT TO SEE

                TWAS SO COMPELLING
                THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS
                AS HE ENTERED THE OUTSKIRTS
                OF THIS TINY TOWN

                AHEAD WERE THREE MAGI
                SO HE FOLLOWED ALONG
                SUDDENLY FEELING
                TWAS WHERE HE BELONGED

                DRAWN TO A STABLE
                NOT KNOWING JUST WHY
                SUDDENLY HE HEARD
                A NEWBORN BABY’S CRY

                THE MAGI WERE KNEELING
                IN REVERENCE AND AWE
                IN SWADDLING CLOTHING
                THE BABY HE SAW

                HE HEARD ANGELS SINGING
                FROM HEAVEN ABOVE
                AS THE MAGI GAVE GIFTS
                SHOWING TRIBUTE AND LOVE

                NOT KNOWING WHAT HAPPENED
                BUT REALIZED TWAS GOOD
                HE FELL TO HIS KNEES
                AS HE KNEW HE SHOULD

    
                FOR AWAY IN A MANGER
                ON A MOST HOLY NIGHT
                THE CHRIST CHILD WAS BORN
                BRINGING THE WORLD LIGHT
