Christmas in Zarahelma

 

In Zarahelma, all is still

And silent at the setting sun.

The pure in heart are praying for

The sign that Samuel said would come

To Zarahelma on the night

That Jesus Christ is born.

 

In Zarahelma, Nephi bows,

Pours out his heart in prayers and tears.

The Lord in mercy reassures:

Lift up your head, be of good cheer,

For Zarahelma, on this night

I, Jesus Christ, am born.

 

In Zarahelma, awe descends

As day continues on through night.

All fall to earth because they know

At last has come the One, True Light.

The Zarahelma sky is bright,

For Jesus Christ is born.

 

In Zarahelma, all is still

And silent at the rising sun.

The pure in heart are full of thanks

And joy because the Savior’s come.

Oh Zarahelma, bless this night.

That Jesus Christ is born!
