On This Holy, Holy Night

Play

Tonight as I listen to the wind
I hear angel voices
Tonight as I stare at the street light
I see a star
And Joseph and Mary's footsteps
Are the creakings on my stairs
And church bells at midnight
Whisper come as you are

On this holy, holy night
I will follow this my calling
For a world that's broken and forlorn
On this holy, holy night
I will pray a prayer of praise
For the baby that was born
He was the world's eternal light
May it shine
On this holy, holy night

Tonight as a car rushes by
It's an angel's chariot
Tonight as I walk down the lane
I'm a shepherd in the field
As I walk back toward my own church
I'm walking in Bethlehem
The sanctuary is the stable
I kneel and adore

On this holy, holy night
I will follow this my calling
For a world that's broken and forlorn
On this holy, holy night
I will pray a prayer of praise
For the Baby that was born
He was the world's eternal light
May it shine
On this holy, holy night

And as a star
Stood forth in the heaven
The watchers ran to see the blessed Babe
And in my prayer
I cling to the promise
That the Savior that was born
Might roll the stone
That seals our hearts away

On this holy, holy night
I will follow this my calling
For a world that's broken and forlorn
On this holy, holy night
I will pray a prayer of praise
For the baby that was born
He was the world's eternal light
May it shine
On this holy, holy night

May it shine
On this holy
Holy night

May it shine
On this holy night

May it shine
On this holy night

May it shine
On this holy night

May it shine
On this holy night
