Today’s video is not really a Christmas song but I have been listening to it this morning and have been profoundly impacted by both the lyrics and the images. It is very much in keeping with our theme Lean Towards the Light. In this season of Advent may we remember that Christ is indeed our guiding light.
Religious themes do crop up in Foy Vance’s music. Have you heard his early song, ‘Gabriel and the Vagabond’? Watch it here and note not only the name of Gabriel and the singing of ‘Hallelujah’ but the coda from about 3:10 on, with its references to Philippians 2 and John the Baptist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4cjCuUQUwI
Dave I love that song – I have posted it before and will probably use it in one of my Monday meditations at the beginning of next year. Mark Pierson introduced me to his songs. Well worth listening to.
