The Christ Child\’s Asleep                                                                  

The Christ Child’s Asleep
   by Donald Walters (aka Swami Kriyananda)
 
The Christ child’s asleep.
The silence is so deep
            That round about, with hope in their eyes,
The animals await,
Their breathing they abate:
            They know their time has come to arise.
For Jesus came on earth
To offer second birth
            To all who would the blessing receive.
The inner peace he brings
Can lift us on soul-wings
            To soar in light, and heaven perceive.
Our pleasures and pains,
Our losses, our gains
            Have kept us long bound,
            The ropes of yearning hemmed us ’round.
We dreamed of imposing on desert sand
Flower gardens of beauty,
Verdant vales of delight:
Imagination misted our sight!
The freedom we would know
Christ offered long ago,
            And even from his slumber flows peace.
All creatures here on earth,
Alive to their own worth,
            Can welcome love, and win their release.
The Christ child’s asleep.
The silence is so deep
            That round about, with hope in their eyes,
The animals await,
Their breathing they abate:
            They know their time has come to arise.
