Angels sing

After Luke 2:8-16

A night like any other,

a job like any other,

watching over sheep

at night. Like any other,

except the night the angel

appears, a great light

shines around them,

it wasn’t normal anymore,

a night unlike any other

before or since. The angel 

speaks of good news,

messiah’s birth, and says

look for a sign, a child

in a stable. In the flash

of a moment, the angel

is joined by a multitude,



A night.

An angel

An announcement.

A sign.

A song.

This one took my breath away, Glynn! Your simple rendition refreshed the Christmas story so beautifully.
