Silent. Holy.

There is no better time than now, this very Christmas season, for all of us to rededicate ourselves to the principles taught by Jesus the Christ.” - Thomas S. Monson

There is not another song that stirs so much emotion, and so much peace, than this one, for me. The words give me chills. My heart is filled with Christmas, true, raw Christmas. Being a mother myself, I imagine a young girl, a virgin nonetheless, delivering her child, the son of God, laying him in a troph. How lucky we are to take a moment to recreate that miraculous birth. Silent night. Holy night.

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. 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. 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 reedeming grace. Jesus, Lord at thy birth. Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
