Candlelight Carol


How do you capture
The wind on the water?
How do you count
All the stars in the sky?
How can you measure
The love of a mother?
Or how can you write down
A baby’s first cry?

Candlelight, angel light,
Fire light and star glow
Shine on his cradle
Till breaking of dawn,
Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis Deo.
Angels are singing,
“The Christ child is born.”

Shepherds and wise men
Will kneel and adore him;
Seraphim round him
Their vigil will keep.
Nations proclaim him
Their Lord and their Savior;
But Mary will hold him
And sing him to sleep.

Candlelight, angel light,
Fire light and star glow
Shine on his cradle
Till breaking of dawn
Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis Deo.
Angels are singing,
“The Christ child is born.”

Find him in Bethlehem
Laid in a manger
Christ our Redeemer
Asleep in the hay.
Godhead incarnate
And hope of salvation
A child with His mother
That first Christmas Day.

Candlelight, angel light,
Fire light and star glow
Shine on his cradle
Till breaking of dawn.
Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis Deo.
Angels are singing,
“The Christ child is born.”

Angels are singing,
“The Christ child is born.”
