James Taylor - Who Comes This Night Lyrics



Who comes this night, this wintry night,
As to the lowly manger?
The Shepards and the Kings did come
To welcome in the stranger.

Who sends this song upon the air,
To ease the soul that's aching?
To still the cry of deep despair
And heal the heart that's breaking.

Brother Joseph bring the light
Fast, the night is fading.
And who will come this wintry night
To where the stranger's waiting?

Who comes this night, with humble heart,
To give the fullest measure
A gift of purest love to bring
What good and worthy treasure.

Brother Joseph bring the lamb
For they are asking for him
The children come this starry night
To lay their hearts before him.

For those who would the stranger greet
Must lay their heart before him
And raise their song in voices sweet
To worship and adore him

Brother Joseph bring the light
Fast, the night is fading
And who will come this wintry night
To where the stranger's waiting

Brother Joseph bring the lamb
For they are asking for him.
The children come this starry night
To lay their hearts before him.

Pure of heart this starry night
To lay their hearts before him.

  6. Terry Shannon

    I am no believer, but I am always drawn by good Christmas music, and am a forever fan of James Taylor. These are nicely done.

    First off, James's voice sounds so fine on this album, love the strings and all of the piano, it's as if he did'nt want to feature his incredible guitar playing as much, love this. 

  8. lesisdefinitelymore

    Such a beautiful arrangement, and of course, with James' voice............well, you know. Happy Christmas!!

  9. teacheng1967

    Dear song, uplifting and a sing-a-long, or if you don't know the words a hum-a-long or lala-a-long. Thank you so much for this song from a pure voice and gentle soul.

    thank you for uploading this song. It has been, for three years, apart of my Youtube Christmas selection. For some reason it has been unable to play due to some copyright infringment. I have been searching continuously to find another version other than the one I have been using and low and behold: I FOUND IT. Thanks a million...I love James Taylor and especially this song.

    @ebain719 Thank you for the reference to Lorie Line. I was able to purchase and download her arrangement! What a timesaver for me.

    Simeon Nelson

    This is ridiculously late.. but any chance you still have access to that piano charts?

  12. Maureen Ferrara Higle

    Where can I find this lovely piano accompaniment in print?
