Silence Of The Night



Deep into the silence of the night,

He is born, Immanuel.


His sweet mother,

Blushes at her new born boy.


Out from the fields they came,

To adore the little infant.


He leans on his staff tired,

Nazareth to Bethlehem,

That's quite a  journey.

A star;

Brightest of the night,

Shines like no other.

The Magi;

The three men of wisdom,

Trek across dessert terrain,

Just to kneel before him.


Of gold, frankincense and myrrh;

They  give to Jesus,

Lain in a manger.
