Carol of the Blogs …

FootnoteMaven has come up with a meme where bloggers post their favorite Christmas carols. I haven’t been able to post my favorite carol as I haven’t had much time lately, but now I do have a little more time.

One of my favorite carols is Silent Night, Holy Night:

Silent night, Holy night,

All is calm, all is bright,

‘Round yon Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild,

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night,

Shepherds quake at the sight,

Glories stream from heaven afar,

Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia;

Christ the Savior is born,

Christ the Savior is born.

Silent night, Holy night,

Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face,

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

This song was originally written in German. For more information on the song and the lyrics in German and English, go to this website: http://www.cvc.org/christmas/sinite.htm. (Note: I got the lyrics of the song from the website above.) Have a Merry Christmas, and Enjoy!
