The Star

We recorded this song, written by Peter McCann, back in 2013. It tells the lesser known Christmas story from the book of Matthew, chapter 2, about a poor homeless family fleeing with baby Jesus from the thugs sent by their ruler to take away their baby. They traveled many miles to seek refuge in a foreign land, where they were given asylum until the evil ruler died and they could return home.

Of course, nothing like that would ever happen today...

 

Just another homeless family hoping for a stranger's charity,
Just one night and one safe place to stay, underneath the star so far away...
And the light, shining from that star, will show you who you are.
