Lullaby

KeepToday’s Word: ‘Lullaby’ as in… A Christmas Lullaby: “On A Night Such As This.”

Years and years ago when our now adult kiddos, Sarah and Soren were just little kiddos, I wrote this sweet little melody and called it “A Christmas Lullaby.” Each night during the last evenings of Advent and all through the Christmas season we’d tuck them into bed and then I’d go to the piano and play this tune for them. At some point I teased four verses of lyrics out of the Christmas narrative in Luke 2. You might want to read through Luke’s story as you listen to this melody. At some point we’ll put this all together.

For now, here’s verses 1 and 2, and a chorus…

On a night such as this with stars shining bright / the angel announced the Good News / “Do not fear, but behold, your Savior is born behold! / Behold, your Savior is born!”

Come and worship the Lord, / let the heavens ring! / For He comes to bring justice and peace! / As the darkness is scattered we rejoice in the light, We rejoice in the light of the Lord! / We rejoice in the light of the Lord!

Watching flocks on the hillsides with fear turned to joy / The shepherds were filled with wonder and awe / Praising God, they bowed down to honor the Child / They knelt down to worship the Lord!

Come and worship the Lord, / let the heavens ring! / For He comes to bring justice and peace! / As the darkness is scattered we rejoice in the light, We rejoice in the light of the Lord! / We rejoice in the light of the Lord!
