“That night when in the Judean skies the mystic star dispensed its light,
A blind man moved in his sleep and dreamed that he had sight.
That night when shepherds heard the song of hosts angelic choiring near,
A deaf man stirred in slumber’s spell and dreamed that he could hear.
That night when o’er the new-born babe the tender Mary rose to lean,
A loathsome leper smiled in sleep, and dreamed that he was clean.
That night when in the manger lay the Sanctified who came to save,
A man moved in the sleep of death, and dreamed there was no grave.”
