A singing communion of churches

In the darkness o’er Judea
In the silence of the night
As Bethlehem lay dreaming
‘neath the still and starry skies
Holy angels came rejoicing
Bright with glory like the dawn
And set the heavens singing
When the Son of God was born

The twenty-fourth advent hymn comes from Poland and is performed in two languages: Polish and sign-language. What an amazing twenty-four days it has been, getting to know the churches of the communion in their unity and diversity, through their hymns of Advent and Christmas.
