A Thousand Lights

Music brings in the Spirit so well – especially during such a holy Christmas time. This song is one of my favorite Christmas hymns as it focuses on the light of Christ.

A thousand Christmas lights are lit
on the darkened Earth.
And thousands, thousands of them shine,
In the deep-blue sky.

All over towns and lands tonight,
the joyful message sounds,
that our Lord, Jesus Christ is born
our Savior and God.

Thou star above Bethlehem,
O, let your gentle light,
Come shining in with hope and peace,
into every house and home.

In every dark and lonely heart,
send a gentle ray –
a ray of our God’s love
in sacred Christmas days.

You can listen to the original song here. Hopefully it brings Christ into your a little more during these Christmas days!


Song: Nu Tändas Tusen Juleljus (A Thousand Christmas Lights are Lit) translated from Swedish
