'Twas in the dead of winter

This Christmas carol is both original and traditional. I use the Gloria chorus of "Angels We Have Heard on High" as my chorus. It makes it a nice little sing-along. It re-tells the story of the angels coming to the shepherds and then places it in the context of this very night.
The women singing with me are the members of the St. Matthew's Women's Singing Circle. We meet monthly for a compline service and mostly unaccompanied singing of sacred songs.

Til I Lay My Burden Down

Til I lay my burden down I’ll carry on

And reach the holiest of grounds I’ll sing my song

Till I reach my heavenly home

I’ll keep praying for the Kingdom Come

I’ll keep trusting in Thy will be done

And carry on

 

Til I cross that river wide I’ll labor on

Milk and honey on the other side; I’ll sing my song

 Till I see my Savior’s face

And greet the saints at heaven’s gate

These good things are gonna have to wait

While I labor on

 

Life‘s a strange reality

You’ve gotta find a little faith

Death’s a big old mystery

At the trumpet we’ll awake

 

Til all tears are wiped away we’ll journey on

Cares and sorrow no more dismay; we’ll sing our song

Oh the land of perfect rest

One big family that is blessed

Heaven on earth - more or less

We’ll journey on; Alleluia. Amen.
