Carry Me, Carry You

A lot of Boomer generation folks are finally waking up to the idea that we’re going to, yes, die. I don’t know if we were the first generation to think we were immortal, but we certainly have tried to extend our childhoods as far as possible. That’s over now, as we see our parents through their last phases and find ourselves burying friends, too many friends, our own age.

I can be a selfish man, I admit it, but in these days I’m finding that the idea of serving is coming forward a little more, and I’m gradually letting go of me. The perennial Boomer question, ‘what do I really want?’ is being supplanted by a different question: ‘God, what do you want?’ Hey, I’m as surprised as anyone! But grace beckons and you know what? It’s a relief.

The beautiful little irony is that “putting away childish things” opens up more freedom to be childlike instead. Born again, indeed. Thank you, God.

The Child Who Changed the World

Now let us greet this lovely child who will
change us all forever
Peaceful and still, the night is ready
for the child who changed the world

He shows the way, no greater love

We welcome the light, welcome the light!

Now be the light, be that lovely child
who will change the world forever
The night is still, the light so quiet
Go change the world

Christmas Is Love (Amor Real)

(c) 2014 Mike Davis

Christmas time is the perfect time
to welcome the light
and remember that love will never leave us
The stars and the moon in that cold night sky;
the baby’s eyes so bright
and his mother smiling, knowing
that love has come tonight

Real love, real love by the light of that star
Amor real, such a beautiful, beautiful child
Amor real, a la luz del sol divino
Christmas is love. Love and light

Long time ago the stage was set
in the beginning was the word
The wonder and the mystery of all that is
In the vastness of the universe,
in the quiet of the void
the world stood still for an eternity,
and the sound of love was heard

Amor real, a la luz del sol divino
Christmas is love. Love and light

Someday soon we’ll see the truth
that love is all there is
And the glory of the light that shines
will show us the way

Sweet baby Jesus lead us,
we will follow your light
such a beautiful, beautiful child;
such a beautiful night

Christmas is love. Love and light
Christmas is love. Love and light
Beautiful child, be the light of love
