Candlelight Carol

Liedtekst

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, firelight 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 virgil will keep
Nations proclaim Him their Lord and their Saviour
But Mary will hold Him and sing Him to sleep

Candlelight, angel light, firelight 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 at 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, firelight and star glow
Shine on His cradle till breaking of dawn
Gloria! Gloria in excelsis deo
Angels are singing; the Christ child is born
