Merry Christmas from ReKnew

Bless you all as you celebrate the birth of Jesus today. Here’s another song by Eustace the Dragon to celebrate.

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
“Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite.”

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
“Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea.”

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
“Do you know what I know?
In your palace walls, mighty king,
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold–
Let us bring him silver and gold.”

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

Xmas

Kevin Dooley via Compfight Zach Hunt brings a huge challenge in this article about the ongoing lament about the “liberal attack on Christmas.” Maybe the real problem is not with the media or the “liberals” or the merchants, but with us.
