One You Don't Hear Very Often



Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Bring a torch, come swiftly and run.
Christ is born, tell the folk of the village,
Jesus is sleeping in His cradle,
Ah, ah, beautiful is the mother,
Ah, ah, beautiful is her Son.

Hasten now, good folk of the village,
Hasten now, the Christ Child to see.
You will find Him asleep in a manger,
Quietly come and whisper softly,
Hush, hush, peacefully now He slumbers,
Hush, hush, peacefully now He sleeps.

My fifth grade class in Mondovi, Wisconsin sang that song for a Christmas Concert-along time ago-I can still hear Mrs. Canar telling us to enunciate! Thank you, more Christmas memories!
