Behold a Miracle

By Linda Edge and Elton Smith

CCLI Number: 2444006

Linda sent me this Christmas poem. I devised the melody which should work for a choir to sing. Many thanks to my mother, Patsy Stevens, for creating the piano score (and playing it in the recording) and to Susan Tolle-Knight for singing our song so beautifully. - Elton November 15, 1997

This song is part of our Christmas play, The Perfect Gift.

Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy!
All of heaven came to sing
Behold a miracle
in the town of Bethlehem
with a star shining overhead
and God smiling down on us
Behold a miracle
spread the news across the land
Come and worship the newborn child
as all creation sings
Behold a miracle
for unto you is born a King

* * * * * * Bells * * * * * *

Oh, you shepherds in the fields
Listen as the angels sing
Joyful news about the Christ child
Behold your new born King
Follow close the brightest star
On this glorious Christmas night
And you will find the Savior
Beneath its shining light

Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy!
All of heaven came to sing
Behold a miracle
in the town of Bethlehem
with a star shining overhead
and God smiling down on us
Behold a miracle
spread the news across the land
Come and worship the newborn child
as all creation sings
Behold a miracle
for unto you is born a King

I have a really hard time playing sharps, is there any way this could be transposed to 4 flats?

what a fabulous song - part of the choir's contribution for the candlelight carol service. a little hint - if you're using the lovely full instrumental backing - the last phrase ('unto you/us is born') repeats 3 times.Now I'm looking on the website for Easter

This melody lead me to your Website many years ago when I heard it as background music on another Website. I liked the melody and when I heard the words, I love the song even more.
I have three of some of your first CDs and I really like the music. So glad I can keep referring people to your Website after all these years.
Thanks for all your efforts

This song is really beautiful, music and lyrics are wonderful. Linda has such a lovely voice. I can never thank Elton enough for his music, We used his music in church with our choir all the time. We definitely will be doing this song Christmas day. We have a great organist and he is doing good things with us and Elton's music has really helped improved our Choir. Thank you very much and please keep up the good work. God's blessings....
