Silent Night

“For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light” Psalm 36:9.

At this time of year many songs are heard of the Christmas season and the birth of Christ. I have, for as long as I can remember, sung this song and have not enjoyed the true context of the words. The song that is profound to my heart is “Silent Night.” The words are insightful to the accurate meaning of this season. At this busy season, let’s take a moment to have a silent night.

It’s good to realize, all is calm and bright, and a child from a virgin mother is born, a seed of the woman; the word of God. The infant is Holy, tender and mild; it’s beautiful to ruminate in heavenly peace. It had to have been an amazing sight the shepherds quaked. Many activities in heaven were taking place: hosts were singing and glories streams from afar. Even the sky is lending its light and angels sing. God’s love in pure light and redeeming grace for the world, a Savior is born! God in magnificent greatness sends His Son to be born for me. Accepting the Son of God, I can be forgiven of my sin, and the Holy Spirit is always with me. God has given me a perfect gift.

Silent Night, Holy Night,
All is calm, all is bright
‘Round yon virgin mother and child,
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar;
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia.
Christ the Savior is born.

Silent night, Holy night,
Wondrous star, lend thy light.
With the angels let us sing
Alleluia to our King,
Christ the Savior is born.

Silent night, Holy night,
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

Glory to God!
