“Was He Quiet or Did He Cry?”

Christmas CD cover

Steve & Annie Christmas CD


When I was a child my Mother taught me a Christmas song that asked the question, “Was He Quiet or Did He Cry?” When our children were small  I passed the song on to them. When our daughter, Heidi, was fifteen she sang it on our Christmas CD (Coming Home For Christmas). Now she has taught it to her children.

Hope you enjoy this old song that has become one of the Chapman Family Favorites!

    Steve and Annie,
    Beautiful song! I love songs that make us think. So simple yet provoking! I think he cried like any child while his voice was probably soft and full of love as he died! ‘It is finished’! what a great way to start my day!

      Thanks for your comment. And to think…someday we’ll get to hear that voice! Blessings to you and yours,

    Who wrote this song? We love to sing it.

    • Steve and Annie says

      We don’t know who wrote it but I (Steve) sang it as a kid so it’s at least 50 years old. Sorry I can’t help.

    These comments long overdue = you are both great examples of Jesus’ servants. Your music is from the heart and godly touching our hearts to be better spouses, parents, grandparents & now great grandparents!
    God has blessed us abundantly and we don’t take it lightly. We’ve been to a couple of your concerts = a retreat for married couples in Maryland and in Pennsylvania to an outdoor public park. We spent the night
    there and talked on the hotel elevator. We miss hearing your old school Jesus music on the radio and need
    to update our collection. May God continue to bless your ministries and put meat on your table.
