It being Christmas Eve, you probably expected a Christmas song from Sissel. And you shall not be disappointed.
But wait! There’s myrrh! (As the meme says.)
Below is my quick translation of the lyrics. The original hymn is Swedish, music and words written in 1898 by Emmy Kohler.
A thousand candles in the gloom
Shine all around the earth,
And heaven’s stars are smiling down
To hail the Savior’s birth.
In palace and in cottage low
The news goes round tonight
Of He who in a stable born
Is God and Lord of Light.
Thou shining star of Bethlehem
So bright and fair above
Remind us of the angels’ song
Of light and peace and love.
To each poor lonely heart on earth
A beam of blessing send
So they may find the way that leads
To Bethlehem again.
