Leise rieselt der Schnee

We woke up to snow again this morning. It was a light snow. As I walked down the hill from our house to the bus the beautiful Christmas song Leise rieselt der Schnee kept running through my head. The melody and text describe so well a light snow fall and the peace that accompanies it. Thinking of a Christmas song at Easter was also nice because without Christmas, we wouldn't be able to celebrate Easter.

German first verse

1. Leise rieselt der Schnee,
Still und starr liegt der See,
Weihnachtlich glänzet der Wald
Freue dich, 's Christkind kommt bald!

English first verse

1. Snow falls softly at night,
Stars o'er the lake shine so bright,
The forest reflects holy light,
The Christ child is coming tonight!
