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.
