On Christmas Night . . .

The winter moon is rising, the snow is coming down
On the old Seatown
Carol singers singing out those old familiar songs
From days long gone
From somewhere in the distance the chapel bell rings clear
A time to count our blessings, and all that we hold dear.

We'll raise a glass to absent friends as all those times we shared
Come to mind
From long lost days of innocence the endless trail unwinds
With passing time.

Now the chapel choir is singing, their voices raised as one
Another journey over, another just begun
On Christmas Night.

From out there in the darkness, a choir of angels sing
In quiet contemplation we'll find the gift they bring
On Christmas Night.
