I heard the bells on Christmas

În învălmăşeala acuzelor şi a strigătelor cotidiene care ne camuflează ura, mulţi dintre noi ajungem să mimăm, o dată pe an, corul sentimentelor umane copleşite de dulceaţa  faptelor bune şi a dorinţelor glazurate cu o iertare convenţională. Alţii, strecurându-se printre capriciile indiferenţelor, îşi strâng mâinile într-o rugă pentru o lume mai bună, sentimente mai adevărate şi curate şi un strop de bucurie reală.

În orice formă a revoltei postmoderne ne-am schiţa profilul, cu siguranţă că fiecare dintre noi ar dori acolo, în intimitatea inimii rănite şi temătoare, să audă corul unor îngeri care vestesc pacea pe pământ.

Casting Crowns – Peace on Earth (2008)


I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men

And the bells are ringing
Like a choir they’re singing
In my heart I hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them?
Peace on earth, good will to men

Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men

Then ringing singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells they’re ringing
Like a choir they’re singing
And with our hearts we’ll hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Do you hear the bells they’re ringing?
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Peace on earth, Peace on earth
Peace on earth, Good will to men
