A Starry Night

A STARRY NIGHT 

Words & Music by Lawrence Chewning 

It was a starry night 
Not even a cloud in sight 
And there we were, watching our sheep, almost asleep 
Suddenly a light appeared 
And our hearts were filled with fear 
We fell on our faces, too frightened to look 
We trembled and shook 
Then an angel said, “Don’t be afraid. 
For I bring tidings of joy your way 
Unto you a Child is born 
This very morn.” 
Then we looked and saw a mighty crowd 
Praising God and shouting out loud 
There were thousands. They lit up the sky. 
What a glorious sight. 

CHORUS: They were singing, “Glory to God in the highest 

Glory to God above 
And on earth let there by peace, good will, and love. 
Good will and love.” 

“In the city of Bethlehem 
You must search until you find him 
He is the Savior of the earth 
This is the night of his birth.” 

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE 
“He will be wrapped up in swaddling cloth. 
He will be lying in a feeding trough. 
And when you see Him, then you will know 
These things are so.” 

CHORUS: They were singing, “Glory to God in the highest. 

Glory to God above, 
And on earth let there be peace, good will, and love. 
Good will and love.” 

When we saw him we trembled inside 
Some of us laughed and some of us cried 
Oh how our hearts were filled with joy 
What a beautiful boy. 

CHORUS: We were singing, 
“Glory to God in the highest. 
Glory to God above 
And on earth let there be peace, good will, and love. 
We were singing, “Glory to God in the highest 
Glory to God above 
And on earth let there be peace, good will and love. 
Good will and love. 
Good will and love.
