Dancing to a different tune- A Christmas Carol

jacobs star (2)

Dancing to a different tune,

Howling at the stars and moon,

Glory spilling from finger tips;

Maker meeting his creation.


Dancing to a different tune,

Messiah comes to a virgins womb,*

Spirits children born a new;

Dancing to a different tune.


Dancing to a different tune,

The music maker,singer,one;

Comes to be a servant son.

Spirits children dance along,

Singing aloud their own sweet song.

Heavenly music is hard to hear,

Yet harmony comes to the makers ear!


Each has ears to hear and yet,

One’s dance is oft circumspect.

Who’s to say the song is true,

But he who hears the servant’s cue.


“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”Friedrich Nietzsche
