christmas songs

Len at Next Reformation points to a couple of christmas songs that give a different, but good take on christmas.
1. Labour of Love by Jill Phillips.
It was not a silent night
There was blood on the ground
You could hear a woman cry
In the alleyway that night
On the streets of David’s town

And the stable was not clean
And the cobblestones were cold
And little Mary full of grace
With the tears upon her face
And no mother’s hand to hold.

2. Prodigal Daughter by Andrew Smith, a haunting song, expresses the reality of street life and why so many of our children end up there. Too many lost children… too few fathers.. The message of Christmas is that the Father sent His Son into the world to offer a home, a safe place, for the lost ones...

I see her wander round
Princess without a crown
Stolen and fallen down
Beneath her burden
She’s floating through my town
A bride without a gown
Passing her heart around
To numb the hurting..

She’s scared of coming home
She’s been so long alone
She sat upon her throne
Until it crumbled.
And now she’s got to choose
She’s nothing left to lose
She’s battered and she’s bruised
And feeling humble..
