Dan Forrest: There is Faint Music
University of Utah Singers

There is faint music in the night,
And pale wings fanned by silver flight;
A frosty hill with tender glow
Of countless stars that shine on snow.
A shelter from the winter storm,
A straw-lined manger, safe and warm,
And Mary crooning lullabies,
To hush her Baby’s sleepy sighs.
Her eyes are rapt upon His Face,
Unheeded here is time and space;
Her heart filled with blinding joy,
For God’s own Son–her little Boy!

Lyrics as follows:

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

Come, Thou long expected Jesus?Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,?Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,?Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,?Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,?Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,?Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit?Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,?Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
