The Beast's Third All-Time Favorite Christmas Song

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent

Powerful.  That is best word to describe my third favorite all time Christmas song.  When this song is performed it demands the attention of all hearers.  What is most significant about this song is the message that service to and worship of Christ is not a suggestion on Christmas day; it is a demand.  Thus, the final line of the first stanza, "Our full homage to demand."  Here are the lyrics to the first stanza of the verse.  Take another listen to this song when you get a chance.

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.
