This is the time of the year when we want to meditate on the Christ Child and the memories that flood back from childhood about Gentle Jesus Meek and Mild. Mary the Gentle One hovering over the manger that holds the Son of God and all is calm and all is bright. It is a beautiful image. Luther was a bit more graphic and earthy about that night and those conditions but I still hold that image in my heart. I have to remember that this Gentle Jesus is also the Lion of Judah and the Judge of the living an the dead. He is the all powerful and almighty Savior and all authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to Him because He has redeemed all things by His blood.
I wrote this song along time ago and I was experimenting with some sounds that I could produce on my key board. Hang in there through the strange ethereal music and tones – the song has to be waited for.
