All is calm, All is bright ...

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 Al-le-lu-ia!
Christ the Saviour is born!
Christ the Saviour is born!

Silent night, holy night!
Wondrous star, lend thy light!
With the angels let us sing
Alleluia to our King!
Christ the Saviour is here,
Jesus the Saviour is here!

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;
Jesus Lord at thy birth.

Happy new year!! :D

Rick said...


Thank you all for your wonderful Christmas wishes. I trust your Christmas was also a blessed one. I value your visits and comments, and above all your friendship. My only regret currently is that my connection doesn't allow me to visit you - yet. We expect to be back in Florida in little over a week and I look forward to visiting you then again.

We've been promised a 3Mb satellite connection once we return here in the springtime - I hope that will be sufficient to carry on blogging and visiting.

May you all have a very good new year, and prosper in your photographic pursuits !
