10670. A Song For Christmas Eve

1 Soft white snowflakes, gently falling,
Who has sent thee from the sky?
"Down on earth, my sisters, calling,
Bid me leave the clouds on high."

2 Sweet, soft music, like a flower,
What has brought thy cadence here?
"Silver bells within the tower,
Sent me forth the world to cheer."

3 Star of evening, steadfast gleaming,
Who has placed thy light above?
"I keep watch o’er children dreaming;
God has kindled me with love."
