My kind of Christmas Carol: When God Made Me, by Neil Young

WHEN GOD MADE ME

Was he thinking about my country,
or the colour of my skin?
Was he thinking about my religion,
and the way I worshipped him?
Did he create just me in his image,
or every living thing?

When God made me.
When God made me.

Was he planning only for believers,
or for those who just had faith?
Did he envision all wars
that were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way
to be close to him?

When God made me
.When God made me.
Did he give me the gift of love
to say who I could choose?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.

Did he give me the gift of voice
so some could silence me?
Did he give me the gift of vision
not knowing what I might see?
Did he give me the gift of compassion
to help my fellow man?

When God made me.
When God made me.
When God made me.

It really is a great song and I hadn't thought of it, but it really is brilliant as a Christmas carol. When I first heard it on the album, I thought it sounded kind of... schmaltzy. But the more I listened, the more I liked it. This line really struck me:

"Did he create just me in his image,
or every living thing?"

It says what I feel a lot of the time. Not that God necessarily is the world or even just humans (which is kind of where I started from when I set out on my own personal quest to understand God and the world), but that this place, us, the trees, the animals, the microbes, reflect the beauty and power of the creator. Or something like that anyhow.

Anyhoo, sorry for the drive-by commenting. I stumbled on your blog from Randy Brock's blog and have been following along. Cheers.

Good thoughts Dharma - thanks. I really love the entire album. The more I listened to it, the more this song struck me as appropriate for Christmas... A good reminder that God, Jesus, and all other personifications of a great being are to be associated with everyone and everything... I feel like we get too caught up in thinking about white/anglo/christian/rigidity whenever we think of the religious heart of Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by - I didn't know about Randy's web log -thanks for passing it on.
