Asleep in His mother’s arms
At rest in His Eternity
Child of Heaven
Gift to the world
Liberty for the oppressed
Freedom for the prisoners
Sight for the blind
Hearing for the deaf
New joy to cover every sorrow.
Sleeping baby without a worry
Without a worldly care
Settled forever within His Father’s peace
Greatness in simplicity
Greatness in humility shown
Who humbles Himself to even look upon the Earth;
Sleeping baby without a need
In His Father’s constant comfort
In His Father’s shalom!
A tiny hand clutches the Universe
A tiny fist set to crush all darkness
Its evil prince and all who follow
Stubbornly in willful rebellion,
Evil for good
Hatred for the greatest love ever displayed.
