A Christmas song about Jesus our Savior, born to be the Light and Life of the world.
When Christ the Lord was born many wonderful things happened–most wonderful of all, God kept the promise He made before the world began: that He would send us a Savior.
The words to this song came to me unexpectedly. How thankful I am that my Heavenly Father was willing to inspire these lyrics in spite of my inadequacy!
In September of 2021, my youngest granddaughter, Aerith, was born. Nearly two years later, her song is ready to post.
“Night of Nights” is my Christmas carol for 2022.
As I thought about the individuals involved with that holy night, I wondered… for whom was that star shining? And for whom does it shine today?
Words by Sally DeFord; Music by Katherine Wright. This lullaby is my Christmas Card Carol for 2021.
He who made the rising storm can bid its fury fail.
Is there room in my heart, or is every chamber full?
The Lord is “the light which shineth in the darkness.”
Words by William C. Martin (1864-1914), adapted; Music by Sally DeFord
My Christmas Card Carol for 2019
For some reason, the 3/4 time always made me feel like the traditional music just didn’t give the words the weight they deserved. So this arrangement got the 4/4 treatment.

A very simple SATB or Solo arrangement of the familiar hymn.
