    THAT NIGHT

    That night when in the Judean skies
    The mystic star dispensed its light,
    A blind man moved in his sleep.
    And dreamed 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 in the cattle stall
    Slept Child and mother cheek by jowl,
    A cripple turned his twisted limbs----
    And dreamed that he was whole.

    That night when o’er the newborn Babe
    The tender Mary rose to lean,
    A loathsome leper smiled in sleep—
    And dreamed that he was clean.

    That night when to the mother’s breast
    The little King was held secure,
    A harlot slept a happy sleep---
    And dreamed that she was pure!

    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.
