Christmas Amalgam




Christmas Amalgam:
 

I’m dreaming of a true Christmas
Where every one who seeks will find,

And the doors will open,

No hopes be broken,

Where hearts find joys profound.


Silent Night,

unbroken
By the sighs of the weary

Because they are weary no more,


Silent Night, Holy Night

All is calm,

no longer fright
Of hunger, war or ravage,

Justice and love now accomplished

In God’s new day.


Of the Father’s love begotten,

Let there be

A new earth to greet
The chosen of the Lord,

And Paradise restored.


Angels we have heard on high

Singing this time,

and with great joy,
Not of the first coming,

In its simplicity

Not of the second,

In its power,

But of the very best,

The present reality.


Come, Lord Jesus.



Mark Harris, 2011
