Silent Night

Silent night.

Sleep, little one.

You’re born into a world of hate and fright.

Hope is a thing that few believe in.

Sleep tight.

Silent night.

Sleep, little dear.

If you can – with all the people shouting in the streets

Wailing for the death of love and peace.

They don’t know that You’re here.

Sleep tight.

Silent night.

Sleep, little Prince.

Your death will bring a death to all our sin.

Your Resurrection save and sanctify us from within.

Your return will rapture us to Your presence and Your bliss!

And all of heaven and earth will praise Your Love and Truth and Might!

On this hallowed eve,

Sleep tight.

One response to “Silent Night”

  1. Jim Swindle says :

    This is a really good poem. It has tension, plus the structure of rhythm of thought, plus truth.
