Candlelight Carol

"Candlelight Carol" er en engelsk christmas carol fra 1984. Både melodi og tekst er skrevet af John Rutter.

How do you capture the wind on the water? 
How do you count all the stars in the sky? 
How can you measure the love of a mother, 
or how can you write down a baby's first cry?
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and starglow 
shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn. 
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis deo! 
Angels are singing; the Christ Child is born.

Shepherds and wisemen will kneel and adore him,
Seraphim round him their vigil will keep; 
 Nations proclaim him their Lord and their Savior, 
but Mary will hold him and sing him to sleep.
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and starglow 
shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn. 
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis deo! 
Angels are singing; the Christ Child is born.

Find him at Bethlehem laid in a manger: 
 Christ our Redeemer asleep in the hay. 
Godhead incarnate and hope of salvation: 
A child with his mother that first Christmas Day. 
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and starglow 
shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn. 
Gloria, Gloria in excelsis deo!
 Angels are singing; the Christ Child is born.
