Lyrics By: Ilene Barton                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      MP3 Sung By: Anna Bjarnson Carson
Description: These empathic words of Ilene Barton express the intimate ‘lump-in-the-throat’ feelings of many Christian women who look upon the                                manger scene, yearn to hold a babe and whisper love in its ear. Regardless of the skeptics, her witness of Christ is as sure as if she’d been                          ‘right there with the sheep.’

1. Yuletide carols sung with cheer, invoke feelings deep in here,
Feelings I’ve laid on the shelf, a lump grows in my throat.
They sing of my Savior, humbly born to Mary;
Oh such excellence, who can tell?

2. They say hearts alone can know, yet I do know surely
As if I were right there with the sheep.
Oh, dear Blessed Mary, cuddling your Baby,
Whisper, please, in his ear, that I love him too.
