Were You There on That Christmas Night?

The St. James Cathedral Choir, accompanied by and under the direction of Sherah Moore Burdick, with guest musician Laura Porter on harp, perform Were You There on That Christmas Night by Natalie Sleeth. Performed December 24, 2019 at St. James Episcopal Cathedral in Fresno, California.

Where you there? Where you there

On that Christmas night?

When the world was filled with a holy light?

Where you there to behold as the wonder foretold

Came to Earth?


Did you see? Did you see?

How they hailed him king?

With their gifts so rare that they chose to bring?

Did you see how they bowed as they praised him aloud

At his birth?


Did you hear how the choirs of angels sang

At the glory of the sight?

Did you hear how the bells of Heaven rang

All through the night?


Did you know, did you know

It was God's own son?

The salvation of the world begun?

Did you know it was love that was sent from above

To the Earth?


Did you know it was love that was sent from above

To the Earth?
