Carols in the Mall

I remember a little girl with the voice of an angel singing "O Little Town of Bethlehem" at Lenox Square Mall (Atlanta) back in the 60's. Our school choir was invited to sing that night. As her voice, so clear and sweet, filled the mall, a hush came over the busy shoppers.

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel 

 Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, 


Matthew 1:23

Karen, sometimes children can make us listen more than anyone else. I would loved to have heard that child singing "Oh little town of Bethlehem." And back in the 60's is when my childhood was. :)

Sometimes a voice or instruments are so beautiful, it just stops you in your tracks. Wishing you a happy weekend.

Karen, the GBH choir always attended and performed at Lenox Square. One of my favorite Christmas Carol memories is as a student at GBH, we would gather on the courtyard and sing Christmas Carols for the patients. Precious Memories.
