Do You Know What I Know?

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 sea
With a voice as big as the sea

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


I heard this song on the radio yesterday and it’s been haunting me ever since. Especially the line where the shepherd boy says to the king, “Do you know what I know?” Had I never really listened to the words before?

After seeing the star and hearing about the birth the boy shared the news. With a king! Why are we so afraid to share the message of Christmas? What’s the worst that could happen to us? A raised eyebrow? Someone whispering about us behind our back?

And what’s the worst that would happen to the person we didn’t share with? What if they NEVER know what you know?

Tell people what you know. Share wih one and all what Christmas is about.
