Story

I wrote this in the heart of last winter and wanted to offer it up this solstice night, December 21, 2014. Thanks to Tommy Sherrod at Full Glass Recording and to John Previti on bass guitar. Merry, merry Christmas all! (Not included on Songs from the Talking House)

 

 

Lyrics

Breathed into the belly of the mother of the world

The soul of the universe was born, was born

The heavens could not contain him

Nor the earth, nor the wind, nor the sea

Only the blessed mother's womb could contain his glory

Alleluiah

 

Crickets sing, night birds take wing

All the beasts of the earth know his name

This tiny light in the longest night

Set the world aflame

Alleluiah
