A Night In Bethlehem

One of the most haunting and beautiful Christmas songs I have ever heard. This is from my favorite Christmas album, The Bells of Dublin by the Chieftains.
Lyrics are below.


I sing of a night in Bethlehem
A night as bright as dawn
I sing of that night in Bethlehem
The night the Word was born
The skies are glowing gaily
The earth in white is dressed
See Jesus in the cradle
Drink deep in His mother's breast
And there on a lonely hillside
The shepherds bow down in fear
When the heavens open brightly
And God's message rings out so clear
Glory now to the Father
In all the heavens high
And peace to His friends on earth below
Is all the angels cry
