Be still, dear friend, think back the day
When angels sang to shepherds cold,
And starry night lit up their way,
As God’s great Love did them enfold.
And in the stable they did see
Our Saviour just as they’d been told.
With “Peace on earth” eternally
Our God’s great Love did them enfold.
Dear brethren, God’s dear Love was planned
To reach all hearts, to make all gold.
This Christmas take your neighbour’s hand:
Let God’s great Love you all enfold.
And when your heart is full of Love
It radiates through all you are:
And shining thus it seems thereof
The universe has one more star!
