Silent Night! Holy Night!


Silent Night! Holy Night!

                                 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 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 the dawn of redeeming grace — Jesus, Lord at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.

—Joseph Mohr, Trans. by John F. Young

This one caught me by surprise.  Didn’t ‘see’ it coming, no pun intended.

 Just take waaaaay too much for granted, I do.

Took a couple of minutes to get it.

 This video is about listening with your eyes, since it is in sign language.

At one point I hear myself think, Why sign language, when there’s a screen with the words on it?

And then I started watching her sign,

and I got it.

What are your thoughts?

There is something beautiful in the signing.

Something that is missing in the English language.

Something that describes our LORD,

and what He has done for us.

Christmas is over.

Let us not forget.

Our Saviour’s sacrifice.
