It's almost Christmas time

A wonderful video by Sixpence None The Richer - Silent Night.

Leigh NashDan Haseltine

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,
Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia;
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

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
Christ is Born


I can see the mirrored sky
And I can tell that you've been crying
There's nothing in these light that glows
and tells you that this worlds not dyeing and underneath these blankets There glows a warmer kind of light
You wont have to sing alone

I can see you in the snow crystal tears have started drying
There's something in these lights that glows The savour in a manger lieing up above these blankets are angels filling up the sky a star is burning in the night.

Jesus lord at thy birth

Christ is born

Update: Lots of people seem to be googling for the Dan Haseltine lyrics, I did my best but there is one part I simply could not get. It sounds like he is saying “bright” has in "underneath these blankets bright There glows a warmer kind of light" but it doesn't fit in the sentence. Anyway this is my best effort, I hope it helps.
