STARRY NIGHT

LITTLE DONKEY LYRICS

Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load
Been a long time, little donkey, through the winters night
don't give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehem's in sight

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey, journey's end is near
There are wise man waiting for a sign to bring them here

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Do not falter little donkey, there's a star ahead
It will guide you, little donkey, to a cattle shed

Little donkey, little donkey, had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Mary, safely on her way


Advent Candles Tell Their Story Lyrics:


Advent candles tell their story 
as we watch and pray,
longing for the Day of Glory, 
‘Come, Lord, soon,’ we say. 
Pain and sorrow, tears and sadness 
changed for gladness on that Day. 

Prophet voices loudly crying,
making pathways clear; 
glimpsing glory, self-denying, 
calling all to hear. 
Through their message - challenged, shaken –
 hearts awaken: God is near! 

John the Baptist, by his preaching 
and by water poured, 
brought to those who heard his teaching 
news of hope restored: 
‘Keep your vision strong and steady, 
and be ready for the Lord.’ 

Mary’s gift, beyond all telling, 
was to give Christ room. 
She gave God a human dwelling 
in a mother’s womb. 
Who could guess the final story? 
– cross and glory; empty tomb! 

Advent candles tell their story 
on this Christmas Day. 
Those who waited for God’s glory: 
they prepared the way. 
Christ is with us: loving, giving, 
in us living, here today!
