A SILENT NIGHT


T'was a silent night in Bethlehem
When the shepherds watched their flocks
All of a sudden an interuption came
That silenced their small talk.
For heavenly hosts with hosanahs sang
Announcing the Saviours birth
Then chorus rang in the shepherds hearts
They were the happiest men on earth.
They went to see if it was so
as to what the angel said
And sure enough in Bethlehem
They saw where the babe was laid.
When they had seen it they made known
The saying which they heard
Returning they glorified and praised their God
For they had seen the Lord.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
