Mary Chapin Carpenter – Candlelight Carol lyrics
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 star glow
Shine on his cradle
Till breaking of dawn
Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis Deo
Angels are singing
The Christ child is born

Shepherds and wise men
Will kneel and adore him
Seraphim round him
Their vigil will keep
Nations proclaim him
Their Lord
And their Saviour
But Mary will hold him
And sing him to sleep

Candlelight, angel light
Firelight and star glow
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 star glow
Shine on his cradle
Till breaking of dawn
Gloria, Gloria
In excelsis Deo
Angels are singing
The Christ child is born
Angels are singing
The Christ child is born
