Joy To The World…Let Earth Receive Her King

Celebrating one of the most charismatic event in the history of ‘His Story’ when man celebrates the Holy Advent Of His Son today should not man look within recapitulating the ideal life of Son Of God, making his life worthy by emulating his feats…it is time for everyone to arise and awake…On this holy Christmas let’s take a peek into the illustrious life and message of Lord Jesus Christ…a poem by Sri Jullie Chaudhuri.


Hark the herald angels sing…
Glory to the newborn King…
Peace on earth and mercy mild…
Born so that no one may die…
Born to raise the sons of earth…
Born to give them second birth…
Bless us all, sweet Jesus, to you we pray,
With an iota of your care and concern bless us this day,
From the Ocean of Cosmic Compassion,
May we receive a celestial spray…

Oh! It’s that enchanting time of the year once again,
The captivating charm of that amazing advent,
Can never wane,
Christmas Carols reverberate in every heart,
What wondrous sentiments they do impart,
Come, let us hear these particular lines,
That ring with delight across countless miles…

‘No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow…
Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy…’

Oh! The all encompassing, supremely unique compassion of Christ,
Into every soul may it be distinctively franchised,
He bore everyone’s travails upon the cross,
Much later and much too late,
With deep remorse and anguished pathos,
Humanity regretted its horrendous folly and colossal loss…

He represented hope for the hopeless,
That glistening dawn in the darkness of distress,
An abundance of pristine noblesse,
That would provide ultimate relieve from menacing duress…
Oh! that infinitely kind heart that had no constraint,
And that divinely invigorating beatitude,
That radiates only from a true messiah or saint,
That sought no personal gain,
Yet endlessly echoes this wholesome refrain -
Man with his divinity must reacquaint…
About the baptism of Jesus,
That wondrous scene,
Let us read what says Matthew 3:16 -
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. And, lo, at that moment the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him.
And a voice from heaven said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Unsurpassable is the compassion of Christ,
He never lets his Father down,
Ever so limitless his empathy…his melting heart,
That won for him a Cosmic Renown,
Forever the obedient Son,
Consciously proving true the statement -
I and my Father are One…

“Blessed are you who are poor,
For yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now,
For you will laugh….in times to come…”
Such are the benedictions from the Son of God,
A pledge…that eventually,
All would receive their just reward…

And so the carols ring out,
Sung fervently by souls devout,
Thus, love returns to rule hearts gone dry,
Benevolence, sympathy, humaneness and mercy,
That had hitherto been driven out,
A mere thought of the sacrifice of Jesus,
Eradicates completely this dreary drought…

‘He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove,
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing…’
There exists a Jesus in each one of us,
The plus beyond the minus,
Awaiting its debut to come to the fore,
The inner recesses of our core we need to explore,
No more time to procrastinate or ignore,
That sublime intrinsic identity,
It is imperative to posthaste restore…

Let every heart prepare Him room,
For the ‘Him’ embodies all things glorious,
Ageless, Boundless and Changeless,
Let heaven and nature sing,
And Earth get ready to receive her King,
For once we all transform,
Into a true son and daughter,
Of the Supreme Creator,
We will the Lord’s heart stir,
To appear,
We will find Him near,
One with Him in the vast expanse of effervescent light,
When we bless ourselves with the Compassion of Christ,
We will with the Beloved One unite…

Joy to the world, Joy to the world…
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas,
And a Christ Conscious New Year,
Oh! That tender spirit of Christmas,
Let us Beloved Bhagawan’s values adhere,
Growing in Christ Consciousness,
Let us augment in and magnify an eternal Sai’s Sphere…
And then,
All will be calm and all will be bright,
Glories will stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts will proclaim – ‘Alleluia!’
Hark the herald angels will sing…
Oh, Come all ye faithful,
Come and behold Him,
Come, let us adore Him…
Joy to the world, Joy to the world,
Along with a myriad sparkling beings…
Let Earth once again receive her Beloved King…
