The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

I SING OF A NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM

Don Oiche Ud I mBeithil
Translated by Seán MacRéamoinn, Date Unknown

1. I sing of a night in Bethlehem
A night as bright as dawn
I sing of that night in Bethlehem
The night the Word was born

2. The skies are glowing gaily
The earth in white is dressed
See Jesus in the cradle
Drink deep in His mother's breast

3. And there on a lonely hillside
The shepherds bow down in fear
When the heavens open brightly
And God's message rings out so clear

4. Glory now to the Father
In all the heavens high
And peace to His friends on earth below
Is all the angels cry
