Do You Hear What I Hear

Lyrics

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
do you see what I see.

Way up in the sky, little lamb,
do you see what I see.

A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear.

Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear.

A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
do you know what I know.

In your palace warm, mighty king,
do you know what I know.

A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring Him silver and gold.

Said the king to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say.

Pray for peace, people everywhere!
listen to what I say.

The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light.

Information About Do You Hear What I Hear

"Do You Hear What I Hear?' is an American Christmas carol written in 1962 and was written as a plea for peace and understanding during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The composer, Noel Rigney living in N. Y. in the 50s was walking home in a depressed mood. "I saw two mothers with their babies in strollers. The babies were looking at each other and smiling. All of a sudden, my mood was extraordinary". Inspired he wrote the lyrics and handed them to his wife, Gloria Shane, who wrote the music.

"Do You Hear What I Hear?' was first recorded by Harry Simeone Chorale, but it was Bing Crosby's version that became a worldwide smash hit in 1963. Since then there have been multiple interpretations from a variety of artists.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read? defbgebaekea
