2000 Decembers Ago

despite my general annoyance today, this song is beautiful and speaks to my heart…

“Did it feel like a night any different

Then at least a million before

Was there any rare expectation

Like there was some kind of somethin’ in store

Did the sky have to hold back the thunder

Did the moon find new reasons to glow

Could the children somehow sense the wonder

2000 Decembers Ago

Were the sheep as amazed as the shepherds

At the new star that lit up the sky

Did the willow trees whisper excitement

To the rivers and streams passing by

Did the joy ricochet off the mountains

‘Til it filled up the valleys below

Did all the world sense love abounding

2000 Decembers Ago

Was anyone able to look at the stable

And not see a child but a King

I wish I could hear back over the years

As heaven & nature sing, heaven and nature sing.

Did the walls of the barn start to tremble

With a glory they could not contain

Did anyone wake with the feeling

Of peace that they could not explain

Oh the love must have been overwhelming

As it warmed everyone in its flow

For all of the earth is still telling

Of 2000 Decembers ago

Was anyone able to look at the stable

And not see a child but a King

I wish I could hear back over the years

As heaven and nature sing, heaven and nature sing

Oh the love must have been overwhelming

2000 Decembers Ago”

-Joy Williams
