For All, Great and Small

Do You Hear What I Hear

Said the night wind to the little lamb.
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see

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 shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear

A song A song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the seas,
With a voice as big as the seas

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace warm mighty 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 bring us goodness and light
– By Noel Regney & Gloria Shayne, husband & wife

 

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

– Thus began the telling of the Gospel of the Incarnate Christ and the pattern was formed: The Gospel is for all, great and small and shall be told from person to person.  This song also tells us that Jesus is both a humble babe and the King to whom even the king of the song gives honor as the bringer of goodness and light.  Shepherd boys and whole governments will give Him honor and tell of his coming and of His saving grace.  The first time that I ever heard this song was on the radio in Seattle in the early ‘60’s and was by Bing Crosby. His version remains as my favorite.
