Blog Caroling...

footnoteMaven has decided to start a new Christmas tradition by challenging us to blog our favorite Christmas Carol. Find out what her favorite Christmas Carol is by visiting her post Blog Caroling.

Choosing just one of the traditional Christmas Carols as a "favorite" was not an easy task but I've selected "Do You Hear What I Hear?" written by Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne in 1962 (according to and entry in Wikipedia).

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
"Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite,
With a tail as big as a kite."

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
"Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea,
With a voice as big as the sea."

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
"Do you know what I know?
In your palace warm, mighty king,
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold--
Let us bring him silver and gold,
Let us bring him silver and gold."

Said the king to the people everywhere,
"Listen to what I say!
Pray for peace, people, everywhere,
Listen to what I say!
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light,
He will bring us goodness and light."
