O HOLY NIGHT

2019 – TUESDAY 24 DECEMBER

O HOLY NIGHT

The eerie sound of silence
Filters through the hall
with gifts piled high around the tree
Awaiting the morning call.

Hardly able to sleep for joy
They lie in bed so quiet
Following shadows around the room
O what a restless night.

A noise upon the roof is heard
But no one can be found
So yielding to sleep they know
that soon,
their morning joy abounds.

There is something about the night before
That makes it all worthwhile
The saviour born for all mankind
And heaven reveals God’s smile.

While shepherds watched their flocks that night
God watched His son be born
In such a lowly humble place
His heart was surely torn

And yet the song of angels
Was heard that awesome night
And little children still hear them sing
The song – O holy night.

The wonder of His grace came down
Surrendering His majesty
Born in a humble stable on earth
To bring new life for you and me.

O HOLY NIGHT
