Taladh Chriosda

The original title of this song is The lullaby of our Savior. It was written by a priest around 1855. The priest lived in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland (pictured). The song has 29 verses and was first written for midnight mass on Christmas Eve.

Mary sings the first verse in Scots Gaelic. She learned how to pronounce the words of the verse, but She is now studying the language to learn how to speak it. Mary selected her favorites of the 29 verses to record.

The song talks about a miracle. God came to earth. He didn’t come as mighty warrior, or regal king, or a staunch iron fisted ruler. He came like all the rest of us come, as a baby. His parents followed an angels instructions and named him Jesus. He experienced life as we experience life. He then experienced death as we deserve to experience death, except he was innocent. Our sin has earned us a horrible painful death. An innocent man, Jesus, died in our place. God raised him up on the third day so now Jesus is alive forever.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
