Now Playing....

One Quiet Moment

One quiet moment, on a star–clustered night,
Two weary travelers knew an end was in sight;
So the soon to be mother, grasped her husband’s strong hand,
And paused to remember where the journey began.

Nine months of yearning filled with joy and with pain;
He almost had left her, but then chose to remain
Close by the woman he had not even kissed,
Who would bear him a son that would never be his.

And in one quiet moment, a woman and man
Accepted the part they would have in God’s plan;
To give up His glory, and be born as a man.
In one quiet moment. . .

They dreamed of the days they would spend with their son,
Taking walks through the hillsides and watching Him run.
And some days the fingers that had fashioned the stars,
Would reach out to hold them when the walk was too far.

They wrestled with knowing that His life would bring change;
Friends would grow distant, and shun them as strange.
Though they tried not to think it, in their hearts they were sure,
That their baby was destined to die for the world.

And in one quiet moment, a woman and man
Accepted the part they would have in God’s plan;
To give up His glory, and be born as a man.
In one quiet moment. . .

One quiet moment they could suddenly hear
Thousands of angels singing so clear;
“Glory to God, His Salvation is near !”
In one quiet moment . . .
In this one quiet moment . . .
One quiet moment.

I have this CD playing in my car right now. And this is one of my favorite songs off of it. It's a gorgeous CD. All accapella music, some of the traditional Christmas carols and then some other ones too. Just wonderful.

My other favorite Christmas CD is this one by Michael Card. These two CD's have been on a constant rotation in my car for the past month to get that Christmas-y feeling.

Mom:

I'm with you - every year they touch my heart in a different way. Thank you Jesus for coming!

Those lyrics sound wonderful! I've never heard the song. I might have to look for it. Merry Christmas to you and Happy Birthday Jesus! :)

Sunidesus:

I'm not sure where the CD came from originally. I assume it's still in print. Mine is a copy of the one my parents have.

Aunt Linda:

Happy Birthday, Jesus!
