Now light one thousand Christmas lights
On dark earth here tonight
One thousand, thousand also shine
To make the dark sky bright

Repeat chorus

Oh, once when skies were starry bright
In a stable cold and bare
Sweet Mary bore a son that night
A child both kind and fair

She named her little son Jesus
Sweet Mary meek and mild
She cradled and she rocked Him too
That little tiny child


He came to bring us love and light
To bring us peace on earth
So let your candles shine to night
And sing with joy and mirth
