A Carol for Everyone~Written in 1642 by Jean de Brebeduf

A Huron Christmas Carol by Tom Jackson

Twas in the moon of wintertime When all the birds had fled 
That mighty Gitchi Manitou Sent angel choirs instead 
Before their light the stars grew dim 
And wandering hunters heard the hymn

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria 

Within a lodge of broken bark The tender Babe was found 
A ragged robe of rabbit skin Enwrapp'd His beauty round
And as the hunter braves drew nigh The angel song rang loud and high

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born 
In excelsis gloria

The earliest moon of wintertime Is not so round and fair
As was the ring of glory On the helpless infant there
The chiefs from far before him knelt
With gifts of fur and beaver pelt

Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria

O children of the forest free O sons of Manitou
The Holy Child of earth and heaven Is born today for you
Come kneel before the radiant Boy Who brings you beauty, peace and joy
Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria

From the Clear Blue Sky~"Din Cer Senin"

From the Clear Blue Sky Sung by Nuns from Camarzani Monastery in Romania

(Each Line Repeated 2 Times)
From the Clear Blue Sky
From the clear blue sky, a divine choir Can be heard sweetly singing.
Gifted shepherds appear on the hill Bringing white lambs as gifts.
A star on the horizon watching over the paths, Shining in the distance
Leads the magi with their precious gifts Carried in white bags.
And a frail infant with a holy face Sits quietly smiling.
And His Mother was cradling Him And everybody was joyous.
And the holy sky and this earth Were illuminated by the Infant.
And they became holy and they received God’s grace Those who let Him in.
And us, having seen this, we pray And we kiss His face.
Yearning to devote our lives to Him And to praise Him forever.
From the clear blue sky, a divine choir Can be heard sweetly singing.
