Night Carol


Night has fled before the light

A Savior born, the welcome sight

Angels sing the glorious ‘frain

And shepherds come, their homage pay


Mary holds her child dear

Amidst the cold and dark and fear

Her life a joyous offering

To raise in love the child King


And on this night the future grace

To bring us home from sin and hate

Was revealed, the Word made flesh

God’s living gift to conquer death


O seeker come and see this sight

O faint of heart, come know God’s might

Know all the truth in God’s own Son

This night, our Lord, our Savior’s come!


(Words and music: Susan Forshey, 1999)
