Christmas Eve


Christmas Eve

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

Pine-crowned hills against the sky kneeling low to pray;

Friendly lamp-lit villages along the snowbound way;

Myriads of silver stars gleaming softly bright.

Little King of Bethlehem, I see Thy star tonight.

 

Fragrant wreaths and candle glow in a city street.

There are songs of Christmas carolers high and clear and sweet,

Echoes of the angel host with clothing shining white.

Little King of Israel, I hear Thy song tonight!

 

Words of ancient prophecy are mine to take or leave;

Visions of a golden age this happy Christmas Eve.

Peace on earth, good will to men, oh dim and holy light!

Little King of all the world, I share Thy dream tonight.
