Song - Night of Messiah
In the beginning, “Night of Messiah” was going to be a Christmas song — and only that. With a focus on all the magical images we remember from childhood pageants and musicals, it would be a song of angels, maggi and mangers. But as I was writing the lyrics, I came to believe that to focus on those things without dealing with what is truly magical would be missing an opportunity. Of course the fact that the Son of God traded his throne for a manger is amazing. But the point of the story is not what He did but why He did it. And so, yes, we should remember that wonderful night. But we should never forget that dreadful day. And we must continually wait with eager anticipation the glorious, victorious return of our Messiah.
