Night of Nights

Night of nights, holy night
Stars and angels tremble at the sight
On this holy night
On this holy night
Welcome

Night of nights, night divine
Captivate this heart of mine
On this holy night
On this holy night

Who would have imagined a moment like this
Heaven bending near like a tender kiss
On this holy night
Who would ever dream of a treasure like this
Heaven touching earth an incredible gift
On this holy night

Night of nights, sacred hour
Rarest bloom begins to flower
On this holy night
On this holy night
Welcome

Welcome, welcome all are welcome
Shine here O Infant Light
All our hopes and all our longings
Are met in you tonight
Here on this holy night

Who would have imagined a moment like this
Heaven bending near like a tender kiss
On this holy night
Who would ever dream of a treasure like this
Heaven touching earth an incredible gift
On this holy night, holy night

Welcome, welcome

Dreaming Of A Holy Night

2020 Radio Edit Version

I’m dreaming of a holy night
Dreaming of a silent night
The kind of night I’ve wanted so long
But I’m waking to reality
In another war torn century
And it’s drowning out the angel song
Though I know it’s way out of sight
I’m longing for a future that’s bright
Dreaming of a holy night

I’m dreaming of a holy night
And I’m praying
Lord we need some heaven here on earth
Come and melt our bleak mid-winter hearts
O come and heal what’s torn apart
Let’s never stop believing in
A holy night

I’m believing in a holy scene
When all across our TV screens
Headlines say ‘No bad news’
And we hear all heaven and nature sing
As earth at last receives her King
And joy fills every avenue
I feel it though it’s still out of sight
Imagining a world that’s put right
Dreaming of a holy night

A holy night
Give me a holy night
Hurry that holy night
A holy night

I want joy to the world
I want peace on earth
And goodwill
As the silent stars go by
Let it be upon a midnight clear -
And let a guiding star appear
Let the music of the angel song
Ring loud and clear and strong
Until that holy night

I’m dreaming of a holy night
And I’m praying
Lord we need some heaven here on earth
A holy night
Hurry that holy night

Reckless Love (From bliss to pain)

From bliss to pain, in a blink of time
So our God arrives in Palestine
That’s how the story goes
A peasant girl, the scandal fresh
Our God conceived frail bone and flesh
Strange way to save the world
The streets are dangerous
For a child a thousand ways to die
Oh how can he survive

A reckless love
God with us
In weakness
Defenceless love
God with us
The hopes and fears
Of all the years
Are hanging on each
Breath he breathes

Glory, glory the skies filled with glory
In Bethlehem
Can’t you hear the angels singing
Peace on earth

It offends our minds, reveals our hearts
Our worldly wisdom falls apart
And yet as time unfolds
He unseats the proud lifts up the poor
Tears Satan down and opens heaven’s door
Kingdoms will rise and fall
A plan mysterious going on
A strange deliverance
A saviour born to die

Can’t you hear the angels singing
Peace on earth

Winter Prayer (How long O Lord)

[Joseph]
How long O Lord till this winter ends
Until your face shines on us again?
How long O Lord must we wait for you?
Oh hear our cry it surely must be soon

And still we hope and still we dream
Of ancient glory days returning
Though we are slaves in our own land
Your songs are stirring
On our lips again

How long O Lord ‘till our rescue comes?
Liberation! Liberation!
Until the promise of the Chosen One
Revolution! Revolution!
How long O Lord must we wait for you?

[Zechariah]
A hope I had given up on
A prayer I had long stopped praying
A dream long abandoned
An answer that never came
But the longing still remains
I feel my old hands trembling
For today I’ll stand in his presence
With oh so much more than
My own unanswered prayers
I must take the nation there [Elizabeth]
When our love was young
The future shone
We felt invincible
So long ago
Then as time went by
Our dearest longing was denied
We fought the demons of despair
And turned our grief to prayer
And carried on
How long O Lord

Must we wait for you?

What’s To Be Done About Mary?

What’s to be done about Mary?
What’s to be done about
The state they say she’s in
Such a crying shame
To scandalise a good family name
What’s to be done about Mary?

What’s to be done about Joseph
What’s he gonna do about
A misbegotten child
And no one wants to take a tainted bride
What’s to be done about Mary?

Na na na na

What’s to be done about mercy?
What’s to be done about the dream
I dreamed last night?
What’s to be done when I look in her eyes
And she says ‘Please believe me’
And when he grows up whose face will I see
Looking back at me?
What’s to be done about Mary?

What’s to be done about the baby, Mary’s baby
Who’s going to cradle him and give him sanctuary
Joseph make your move
No one else but you can choose
What’s to be done about Mary?
What’s to be done about mercy?
