    It’s a lovely song, and a sweet lullaby to sing to a sleeping baby/child. I would also like to have the lyrics, so since I don’t see them here, I thought I’d give them a try in english and french. Please make any corrections if you see fit, as sometimes it’s hard to decipher the right word from the song.

    The red sun going down
    At the dark onlook
    A little star is twinkling
    Is the gate of the Heaven
    If we trust what one said
    This wonderful kingdom
    Is just risen for the very little one
    The red sun going down
    At the dark onlook
    A little star is twinkling
    Is the gate of the Heaven
    If we trust what one said
    This wonderful kingdom
    Is just risen for the very little one

    Le soilel c’est enfuit
    Mais dans l’hombre regarde
    Chaque etoile de la nuit
    Est un coin du paradis
    Si l’on croit ce qu’on dit
    Ce royaume enchante
    Le peut etre habite
    Que par les tout petits
    Bonne nuit mon amour
    Que les anges te gardent
    Et t’emportent juste au bout
    Du pays de reves et de fleurs
    Et demain si tu veux
    En ouvrant tes rideaux
    Ta maman de nouveau
    Surira dans tes yeux

    Go to sleep little darling
    May the angles behold you
    And carry you to the land
    Of peace, of love and joy
    Tomorrow, your mother
    Will smile sweetly to you
    And will ask
    ‘Little darling, do you know I love you?’

    Listening to Sister sing I felt as a child at rest on a mothers breast. Her voice is soothing and gentle. Thankyou Sister for lending your voice to the air of my heart

  5. Robert says:

    It would be a gift to view the written words of Sister Chan Khong’s beautiful song while listening. I find viewing the written words while listening enables deeper understanding. Would it be possible to post them below the interactive link on the website?
    Breathing with Thay as one. With deep blessings, Robert

There is no distinction between the one who gives, the one who receives, and the gift itself.
