    First-Place Song

    With feeling

    1. Calm is the night, quiet majesties of light,

    Cool evening breeze and single cry,

    a mother’s tender lullaby.

    Chorus:

    No jeweled crown nor fame is found, except in lighted sky

    And whisper of a Father’s tender murmur of His name, “Jesus.”

    Morning breaks in quiet sigh and fame.

    A dark and sleeping world awakes to never be the same.

    2. Grace adorns humble cloth on bed of hay.

    Born is a king in quiet manger without pretence or display.

    Chorus
