Bread for the Journey

It is that time of year when my music preference switches to Christmas carols. Silent Night, Holy Night is my favorite carol especially when sung in German. This calming and peaceful song ushers in the true meaning of Christmas..

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.

composed by Franz Xaver Gruber
