I have thoughts: There's nothing I don't love about this song.
Verse: Verses one, two, and five are the ones I usually hear sung, so here's verse three.
How silently, how silently,Watch:
The wondrous gift is given;
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His Heaven.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,
The dear Christ enters in.
