One Blessed Dark Night

One blessed dark Night ! The bright stars were aligning for this was the night that Jesus came to earth and one star in the sky was brightly shining oh, this was the night of a baby's birth and all over the world sang angel voices praising this holy night when Jesus was born ! There was no breeze oh, hear how the world rejoices blessed night sublime when the baby Jesus was born blessed night sublime blessed night sublime ! Wise men came guided by a bright star gleaming as if following a holy command that from the dark night sky was streaming and at last by a cradle bed they stand in a barn where cows and lambs guard a manger of baby boy for his destiny is too love transcend ! Oh so blessed, blessed, blessed is his virgin mother I pray our devotion will never cease each person we meet is our sister or brother God sent his son to earth to bring peace our faith in God and Jesus will set us free always keeping faith close is the key ! __________________________ December 6, 2021 Poetry/Lyric/One Blessed Dark Night Copyright Protected, ID 12-1411-515-06 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Written to the Carol - O Holy Night Written for the Premier contest, A Christmas Carol sponsor, Regina McIntosh, Judged 12/29/2021 Fourth Place
