A Few of My Favorite Things…

Christmas Music
Can you see the light from the flickering candle, or the wood stove, or the hearth? Can you hear the strains of soft but beautiful music? I hear this song three ways in the recording in my head: just music, sung in English or in German. I love it!

Still, Still, Still :

Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.
For all is hushed,
The world is sleeping,
Holy Star its vigil keeping.
Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.

Sleep, sleep, sleep,
‘Tis the eve of our Saviour’s birth.
The night is peaceful all around you,
Close your eyes,
Let sleep surround you.
Sleep, sleep, sleep,
‘Tis the eve of our Saviour’s birth.

Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.
While guardian angels without number,
Watch you as you sweetly slumber.
Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.
