Do You Hear What I Hear?
Bing Crosby Lyrics


Do you hear what I hear? (Hear what I hear)
Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see? (Do you see what I see?)
Way up in the sky, little lamb
Do you see what I see? (Do you see what I see?)
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear? (Do you hear what I hear?)
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear? (Do you hear what I hear?)
A song, a song high above the tree
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty King
Do you know what I (do you know) Know? (what I know, know what I know)
In your palace warm, mighty King
Do you know what I (do you know) Know? (what I know, know what I know)
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring Him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I (listen) say (to what I say)
Pray for peace, people, everywhere
Listen to what I (listen) say (to what I say)
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

I think this is still the best version of this song.

@Seb Lat Perhaps it is a Christmas Song that was inspired by the Cuban Missle Crisis with Jesus' plea for peace in mind?

A beautiful song and a timeless classic nonetheless. 🙂

sunsn7

Absolutely. As far as I'm concerned there isn't any debate to be had.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Tony Acosta

Agreed

Seb Lat

@Shake and game A simple google search proves you wrong. While the song does have connotations for a plea for peace during the Cuban missile crisis, it was written as a Christmas song.

Shake and game

This song is about the Cuban Missile crisis but the lyrics were so vague that they turned it into a Christmas song

Thank you so much for this Christmas gem. Nobody did it like Der Bingle. The way it builds with the chorus at the end still gives me goosebumps. I asked the Petersens if they would include this with their new Christmas CD. Their spiritual reverence, harmonies and abilities are amazing. I'm hoping. God bless everybody and have a great Holiday season.

Jason Lancaster

Great song by the one and only great Bing Crosby! May him and his music always live on!!

The Golden Brick

Another classic by Bing coming out, man I’m glad this channel starting animating his music again.

Childhood memories of Christmas immediately flooded my mind as soon as this song began playing. And the goid-old-days feelings of Christmas cheer welled up in my heart. Merry Christmas everyone.
