Latter-day Saint Christmas hymn based on 3 Nephi 1
|In Zarahemla, all is still
and silent at the setting sun.
The pure in heart are praying for
the sign that Samuel said would come
to Zarahemla on the night
that Jesus Christ is born.
In Zarahemla, Nephi bows,
pours out his heart in prayers and tears.
The Lord in mercy reassures:
Lift up your head, be of good cheer,
for Zarahemla, on this night
I, Jesus Christ, am born.
In Zarahemla, awe descends
as day continues on through night.
All fall to earth because they know
at last has come the One, True Light.
The Zarahemla sky is bright,
for Jesus Christ is born.
In Zarahemla, all is still
and silent at the rising sun.
The pure in heart are full of thanks
and joy because the Savior's come.
Oh Zarahemla, bless this night
that Jesus Christ is born!
