Thoughts on Songs with Sting

I see it as Christ in the manger with Mary. He is a baby 100% God and 100%. Man The humanness reflected in CRYING out for His mother, the GODness reflected in the world in SORROW needing salvation through Him as our savior. Mary never left His side through anything from His miracles to His death which BRIDGES us through suffering to eternal life. Though we are the ACCUSED sinners, we also find hope and all our human strength to fight through our path to heaven through Him who loves us enough to perfect us in Him. It's a lullaby between a mother and child, the mother of God and her son, but simultaneously a song of love and hope for all mankind. It's Christmas.
