Wishing you a blessed Christmas from Ananda with this beautiful song by Swami Kriyananda, "The Christ Child's Asleep".
The Christ child’s asleep. The silence is so deep That round about, with hope in their eyes, The animals await; Their breathing they abate: They know their time has come to arise. For Jesus came on earth To offer second birth To all who would the blessing receive. The inner peace he brings Can lift us on soul-wings To soar in light, and heaven perceive. Our pleasures and pains, Our losses, our gains Have kept us long bound. The ropes of yearning hemmed us ’round. We dreamed of imposing on desert sand Flower gardens of beauty, verdant vales of delight: Imagination misted our sight! The freedom we would know Christ offered long ago, And even from his slumber flows peace. All creatures here on earth, Alive to their own worth, Can welcome love, and win their release. The Christ child’s asleep. The silence is so deep That round about, with hope in their eyes, The animals await; Their breathing they abate: They know their time has come to arise.
