Silent night?

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

Silent night?

I can’t imagine

It was so:


The distant murmur

from passing crowds;

The whisper of

Joseph’s anxious reassurance,

And Mary, I am sure,

Cried out in childbirth

Like any woman.

As to little Lord Jesus -

I’m certain

Crying he made

From newborn need.

There is no need

For sentiment:

It will not touch

Our aching world.


Into the gritty reality

God comes:

The loudest shout

Of glorious love

And unrelenting grace.
