  Candlelight Carol
Lyrics

How do you capture the wind on the water?

How do you count all the stars in the sky?

How do 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 vigil will keep

Nations proclaim him their Lord and their Saviour

But Mary will hold him and sing him to sleep

 

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
