October Sky

October sky, so clear and bright;
Shepherds keeping watch by night;
Angels singing in their flight
At the birth of the Savior.
Hallelujah! Sing his praises
At the birth of the savior.

December in the Temple yard,
Facing down the temple guard
Knowing that the way was hard.
This the life of the savior.
Hallelujah! Sing his praises
This the life of the savior.

In early spring nailed to a tree,
Executed, one of three.
Jesus died to set slaves free.
Oh, the death of the savior.
Hallelujah! Sing his praises
Oh, the death of the savior.

A Sunday in the early spring.
To the tomb their spices bring,
Women are the first to sing:
He is risen, the savior.
Hallelujah! Sing his praises
He is risen, the savior.
