Thank you for being a part of Carols by Virtual Candlelight!

We are virtually recreating Carols by Candlelight for all Christmas services this year. If you’d like to participate, begin by watching this instructional video:


Here’s a quick review:

  • Get ready to record your video individually or as a family.
  • Find a place with a nice backdrop, dim lighting and no background noise
  • You will need a phone to record on, and another device (such as a laptop, iPad, or another phone) to play the audio from.
  • Be sure to hold your video recording device horizontally.
  • Light your candle (the candle provided or your own). If you have multiple people, use multiple candles.
  • Record a short test video to make sure that we can still see your faces by the candlelight.
    It’s okay if the video is mostly dark, because we want it to feel like carols by candlelight.
  • Press record on your phone. (This is a super important step!)
  • Light your candle.
  • Press play on the audio from your second device. (Be quiet so we can hear the tone at the beginning of the audio. This will help us sync the videos.)
  • Sing along with all three verses. You can find the lyrics below.
  • Upload your video HERE. There are a couple of questions to answer and then click to upload.

And that’s it! Please upload your video by November 26. Thank you for being a part of carols by virtual candlelight!

LYRICS

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace


Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born


Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
