11. Beautiful Night – performed by @GrahamRichards #onlinecarols

 

In the firelight, waiting, watching
through the dark night
When angel voices split the silent night
Who would believe this sight

Eyes of wonder, as angel faces lit a strange light
Shepherds faces hid from glory bright
Who would believe this
Beautiful night?

Glory in the earth and in the skies
Glory in your face and in your eyes
Goodwill to all simple men and wise
Who would believe this
Beautiful night?

In a manger bed, a crown of straw
around a tiny head,
One day He’ll be wearing thorns instead,
Peacefully sleep tonight,
And while the child sleeps, gentle
Mary lays and quietly weeps,
And her sorrow in her heart she keeps;
What does she know this
Beautiful night?

Glory in the earth and in the skies
Glory in your face and in your eyes
Goodwill to all simple men and wise
Who would believe this
Beautiful night?

Joy to the crippled and the blind,
Peace in your and in your mind,
Dancing on the sorrows left behind,
Will you receive this
Beautiful night?
Will you believe this
Beautiful night?
