a silent night? no they were wrong, that night the universe filled with song. hallelujahs, the glad refrain, ringing loudly from every plain.
silent night? could they not hear? hosannas rising from every sphere; pent up praises of all the years, spent waiting for Messiah’s birth — God had finally come to earth!
the slumbering faithful awake to rejoice, to the angel chorus adding voice; the rocks and stones begin to sing, worshiping the eternal King.
angels proclaiming, shepherds shouting, stars on fire, mankind doubting, wise men seeking, a baby crying –He would save us with His dying.
and rising putting death to shame, the eternal purpose for which He came. to purchase sinful men for God, required He come our path to trod.
and so He left His home in glory, this then is the old, old story — which will be our new, new song; when we join the heavenly throng
in singing as on that night of old, event the prophets long foretold
oh silent night, so filled with song, a world rejoicing that had waited long; released at the moment of Jesus’ birth, praise and worship surrounding earth
hosannas, hallelujahs too sublime for mortal ears, filling the universe with song these many years; someday we will join the throng, praising our Savior all the day long.
listen for the music, listen with your heart; in the silence hear it, of the chorus be a part.
all creation’s singing in worship, joy and praise, celebrating in song the Ancient of Days
The music of our Creator fills all of heaven and earth, praises of the angels ringing as on the night of Jesus’ birth;
oh, silent night, so full of song — come again Lord Jesus, don’t be long.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
