This is the second video with two songs from Swami Kriyananda’s Oratorio Christ Lives telling the story of Jesus’ birth;
SHEPHERDS AWAKE! and SHEPHERDS’ GROTTO
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.” (Luke 2:8-15)

Free Gifts to Feel the Joy of Christmas and to Share It with Others
All too often, when thinking of Christmas, the feelings of stress and worry seem more prevalent than joy and peace. We all long to feel the joy of Christmas, but are challenged by the weeks of busyness leading up to it.
While it’s generally understood that music can have a powerful effect on mood and energy, it’s less common to use that knowledge to our advantage. Joyful and uplifting music can bring a sense of lightheartedness to even the most trying circumstances.
Our sincere hope is that these songs will help you feel the joy of Christmas now, as well as throughout the entire holiday season.
