Christmas Eve 2010

I can now put on my resume that I have stood in for Andrea Moore. Andrea was to have sung "O Holy Night" at the 9:00 Christmas Eve service at St. Matthew's but she has a strained vocal chord and is on 3 months of voice rest. So, now I will sing my "Twas on a night" which is perfect for Christmas Eve. "Twas in the dead of winter the angels did proclaim To sleepy-eyed poor shepherd boys who with their flocks remained They were not praying for a sign When they gazed up in the sky The stars ascended brightly til heavenly hosts drew nigh God's word of peace and brotherhood came to these gentle folk They were not learned men, nor wise, but to them the angels spoke They marveled then they followed And found the sleeping babe And told to all who'd listen of the child that'd been born to save 'Twas on a night such as this the angels did proclaim To sleepy-eyed poor shepherd boys who with their flocks remained Tonight I look up at the stars The stars look down on me The heavens still sing peace on earth to God all glory be. Merry Christmas everyone!
