Silent Night

Written by: Kim Merryman

Salvation was born that long ago night,
In Bethlehem's lowly town.
Little did the townsfolk know,
Emmanuel had come down.
Night time sky began to glow,
Twas a star brighter than the rest.

Never before had so bright a star been seen,
Inciting omens to be guessed.
Good tidings were shared with the terrified shepherds.
Heavenly messengers sang with joy.
The shepherds did as the angels said,
   and worshipped Mary's baby boy.
