An a capella version of a beautiful song I had not heard for so long I had forgotten it existed. Again I have included the lyrics here because they are so meaningful. This is a short and sweet video but it was the one that seems to have the clearest audio. For me, this says it all, it’s the reason for the season!
Long years ago, on a deep winter night,
High in the heavens, a Star shone bright,
While in a manger, a wee baby lay
Sweetly asleep, on a bed of hay.
Jesus our Lord was that baby so small,
Lay down to sleep in a humble stall.
Then came the Star, and it stood overhead,
Shedding its light ’round his little head.
Dear baby Jesus, how tiny thou art.
I’ll make a place for thee in my heart.
And when the stars in the heavens I see,
Ever and always, I’ll think of thee…
I had never heard this song before till this week! It is an old one but new to me, and I love it!! I have included the words here, they are great and paint nice mental pictures :D
Back up in the mountains in that old home town of mine
There’s not a brighter time of year than that of Christmas time
The bells in the little church will all begin to chime
Telling all for miles around Rejoice! It’s Christmas time!
Christmas bells are ringing, I hear the chimes so sweet
The carolers are singing now, I hear them in the street
Outside the white snow falling inside my heart I find
A world of joy and peace on earth back home at Christmas time
A candle in each window; they give a golden glow
While out among the shimmering pines lights sparkle in the snow
And through the lonely mountaintops the wind’s shrill echoes cry
For peace on earth good will toward men and faith that will not die
High above our little town so bright to be so far
There shines upon the whole wide world His gift our guiding star
Everyone in each home can feel a peace sublime
And know the joy the Yuletide brings to all at Christmastime
