Nero

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Radloff

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Sorry for the erratic posting. I’ve been on a writing tear of a different kind lately. So anyway, I’m up in Buffalo this weekend and will hopefully get some cool new photos. Until then, here are some photos from my previous trips to Forest Lawn.

I can only imagine that she at some point must have uttered these words.
