When a Child is Born

One week left to Christmas. I share one of  my favorite songs of the holiday:
When a Child is Born
with Johnny Mathis.
A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas
The winds of change whisper in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn
This comes to pass, when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around
You got the feel, you're on solid ground
For a spell or two no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass, when a child is born

[Spoken:]
And all of this happens, because the world is waiting.
Waiting for one child; Black-white-yellow, no one knows...
But a child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter,
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone's neighbor,
And misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten forever.

It's all a dream and illusion now,
It must come true sometime soon somehow,
All across the land dawns a brand new morn,
This comes to pass when a child is born.

  1. Finnes det en norsk versjon av denne sangen, Kristine? Virker så kjent, men vi kommer ikke på hvor vi har hørt den.

    1. Jeg har aldri hørt noen norsk versjon. Men, jeg vet at på en gammel juleplate med Rune Larsen, ble juleevangeliet fra Johannes ("I begynnelsen var ordet..." lest opp med denne melodien nynnet i bakgrunnen. Jeg var liten da jeg hørte det, forsto ikke mye av den teksten, men elsket den melodien, som ble selve symbolet på julestemning for meg. :-)
