5e36ebb7b78ee8222dcfd05a07018f12For 51 years I have completely missed the possessive on love’s pure light in the Christmas carol Silent Night. Somehow I always thought the Son of God loved pure light, which totally makes sense too, since God is truth. However, it is SO much more amazing to think of the Son of God being the pure light of love (Jesus is the light of the world and God is love)! VERY cool!

Even though Christmas is a few weeks back (or 11 months ahead) it’s never too late for discovery!


Silent Night

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, loves pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
