DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR? (CARRIE UNDERWOOD)

Said the night wind to the little lamb,

Do you see what I see,

Way up in the sky little lamb?

A star, a star,

Dancing in the night.

With a tail as big as a kite.

With a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the Shepard boy,

Do you hear what I hear

Ringing through the sky Shepard Boy

Do you hear what I hear

A song, a song

High above the trees

With a voice as big as the sea,

with a voice as big as the sea.

Said the Shepard boy to the might king

Do you know what I know?

A child, a child

Shivers in the cold

Let us bring him silver and gold

Let us bring him silver and gold.

Said the king to the people everywhere

Listen to what I say

Pray for peace people everywhere

Listen to what I say

The child, the child

Sleeping in the night

He will bring us goodness and light

He will bing us goodness and light

He will bring us goodness and light.


To listen! To Look! To Question? These are human gifts – to look and to listen beneath the surface – beneath the skin. To question that which we think we see and we think we hear – to make the effort to comprehend beyond the noise and the flash. When we read the stories of Jesus healing the blind – it is important to understand that the Disciples were also blind! They were also deaf! They struggled to understand – to comprehend the lessons that Jesus was sharing. The writers of the Gospels wrote wonderful stories that speak to us on different levels. On the first level – children hear them and are drawn to them; as we grow in age and wisdom, we begin to see and to understand the deeper levels – from the flesh to the spirit. Both are necessary, but one adds to the other. The Spirit gives life to the body and the body gives flesh to the spirit. Do we see what we think we see? Do we hear what we think we hear? As time goes on, does our understanding change and grow as we engage in the struggle for life? We are called to life; to be born again, and again, and again as life transforms us.
