QUOTE (Joseph Mohr) – Dec 11

English: Silent Night Chapel Picture of Josef Mohr

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

~ Joseph Mohr

In honor of Joseph Mohr, author of the carol “Silent Night”, who was born on this day in 1792.

  2. How I miss the old carols! The theology relayed is often profound. Santa and Rudolph are not in the same league.


    • Anna – I completely agree. The theology in the old hymns and carols is always so edifying in worship for me.
      God Bless!
