Chrismas Canon (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)

Usually my blog posts are full of words. Thoughts, translated into words, strung into complex sentences which hopefully make sense when linked together with all the other sentences. Today, though, I just wanted to share a beautiful piece of music. Canon is D is a piece that is very well-known, of course, but the two TSO (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) versions of it are the best that I've ever heard. It's not just a breath-taking melody anymore, here, it has lyrics. They are not very complicated lyrics, there are only a few lines to remember, but they are deep.

The song ties together Christmas night (the coming of Christ), with our daily lives and prayers for more grace so that our lives will show what is that perfect and acceptable will of God, and with our hope, our waiting, for His second coming.

The first rendition is sung by a children's choir, and the second rendition is done slightly differently, and is equally incredible. I have included links to both below, along with the lyrics.

This night we pray
Our lives will show
This dream He had
Each child still knows

This night we pray
Our lives will show
This dream He had
Each child still knows

We are waiting
We have not forgotten
We are waiting
We have not forgotten

On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night
On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night

On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night
On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night

On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night
On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night

On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night
On this night, on this night
On this very Christmas night
