A Star Stood Still (Song Of The Nativity) Christmas Song

A Star Stood Still (Song Of The Nativity)

Year: 1962

Written By: Johnny Broderick, Barbara Ruth

Johnny Broderick and Barbara Ruth's song 'A Star Stood Still (Song of The Nativity)' was made famous by gospel singer Mahalia Jackson. Jackson was all about the voice and no matter how pretty the music it just struggled to compete with the power and ingenuity of her singing. 'A Star Stood Still (Song of The Nativity)' appeared on Jackson's 1962 album 'Silent Night (Songs for Christmas)' which includes her wondrous reworking of 'Silent Night'. Given the competition not many other artists have attempted to record this song.
 

A Star Stood Still (Song Of The Nativity) Lyrics

And we shall share
In the glory of love

Near Bethlehem
The wind has seen
The lamb lay sleeping
On the hill

When all that lay
Was steeped with peace
Then lo, a star stood still

A star stood still
On yonder hill
Praise God that star still
Shining still

And we shall share
In the glory of love
Because a star stood still
That night a star stood still

A star stood still
On yonder hill
Praise God that star still
Shining still

And we shall share
In the glory of love
Because a star stood still
That night a star stood still
