Still, still, still

This is a detail from a ceiling fresco in Vienna – angels bringing the Christ Child from the heavenly father to the earth.

The Glory of the new born Christ Child, ca 1715, Ceiling fresco - St Anna, Vienna

And this is one of my favorites. …a carol traditionally sung in churches at the nativity

Still, still, still,
Weil’s Kindlein schlafen will.
Maria tut es niedersingen
Ihre große Liab darbringen.
Still, still, still,
Weil’s Kindlein schlafen will.

Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf,
Mein liebes Kindlein, schlaf!
Die Engel tun schön musizieren,
Bei dem Kindlein jubilieren.
Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf,
Mein liebes Kindlein, schlaf!

Groß, groß, groß
Die Lieb’ ist übergroß
Gott hat den Himmelsthron verlassen
Und muss reisen auf der Straßen.
Groß, groß, groß,
Die Lieb’ ist übergroß.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
