Favourite Christmas songs, Part 1

Over the next 10 days, I’ll share some of my favourite Christmas songs. Here’s one of the very best to start.

It’s no secret that Sufjan Stevens is one of my favourite musical artists, and his 100(!) Christmas songs are on heavy rotation this time of year. This one in particular really moves me. Enjoy!

 

Star of Wonder – Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I call you
From the comet’s cradle
I found you
Trembling by yourself
When the night falls
Lightly on your right-wing shoulder
Wonderful know-it-all
Slightly where the night gets colder

[Verse 2]
Oh, conscience
Where will you carry me?
I found you
Star of terrifying effigies
When the night falls
I carry myself to the fortress
Of your glorious cost
Oh, I may seek your fortress

[Chorus]
When the night falls
We see the star of wonder
Wonderful night falls
We see you
We see you

[Bridge] x10
I see the stars coming down there
Coming down there to the yard
I see the stars coming down there
Coming down there to my heart

[Outro]
I see the stars coming down there
Coming down there to the yard
These days, days, days run away
Like horses over the hills
