I saw Johnny Cash dressed like a Joseph and his guitar was playin' loud. There was a girl who looks like Mary; June Carter Cash started to shout. There was this choir with an archangel movin' his hips from left to right, wearing a suit as bling as Elvis' singing this song of light Listen up all you weary: hide under wings of glory, Join in with the stars of this story, go find your voice in this glorious choir Over there three kings gazing up yonder foll'wing this bright shinin' Ringo Starr In Strawberry fields they sung close harmony I could hear them from afar Four sheperds running like rolling stones and they were humming this pow'rful song and when I die I will still remember 'cause it's melody is so strong! Listen up all you weary: hide under wings of glory, Join in with the stars of this story, go find your voice in this glorious choir War, eat your heart out, your ugly heart out! War, eat your heart out, your ugly heart out! Listen up all you weary: hide under wings of glory, Join in with the stars of this story, go find your voice in this glorious choir

a deafening silence reigned on earth no hope was found, no hymn was heard the broken-hearted could not sing who will break down this soundless lingering? this shady place, in need of light our desperate hearts lost in the night now hold your breath and cease your ways the prince of peace will come and save the day The Son of God came down from heaven above He gave his all to become one of us So look around and see his eyes and meet the stranger who has saved your life a wasted land, without a king the ground was dry, the sky was dim hollow eyes they watch the clouds behold: a wondrous tree of life will sprout The Son of God came down from heaven above He gave his all to become one of us So look around and see his eyes and meet the stranger who has saved your life The Son of God, the Son of Man Prince of Peace, the Great I Am Eternal Light, victorious stream Oh Holy Child, (Thy name’s sweet gleam) The Son of God came down from heaven above He gave his all to become one of us The Son of God, The Son of God, The Son of God

free the refugees! an angel of the lord came to me, told me to flee take your wife and take your kid to safety then i woke up, I packed my bag up, starting to see here's no future, here's no hope for the baby over land and over sea through the rain and misery the overcrowded fishing boat capsized when we were getting close jesus was a refugee, just like me but i'm stuck on christmas island free the refugees! just like joseph, just like mary we had to go leave the country, leave the family and leave our home they locked us up behind barbed wire because we tried to save our kid from modern herods, to stay alive over land and over sea through the rain and misery the overcrowded fishing boat capsized when we were getting close jesus was a refugee, just like me but i'm stuck on christmas island free the refugees!

Sandalen 04:23
sandalen stuk gelopen het zand prikt in mijn ogen ik draag een koning in mijn buik ik draag hem mijlenver van huis dromen wie ziet mij staan stuk geslagen wie kent mijn naam mijn hoofd zit waar moet ik heen vol met vragen blijf je wel bij me wie is de vader van dit kind? is dit het eind of het begin? welkom zijn wij hier wel welkom niemand hier die kent ons is er ergens plaats of zijn we soms te laat deuren wie ziet mij staan dicht geslagen wie kent mijn naam we lopen waar moet ik heen nu al dagen blijf je wel bij me ik ga gebukt onder 't gewicht ik draag de angst op mijn gezicht welkom zijn we hier wel welkom niemand hier die kent ons is er ergens plaats of zijn we soms te laat

Be still and come a little closer to the kid of Bethlehem. He’s got the whole world in his hands. We are nothing without him. He is the shape of life to come. The air that fills our lungs. No better place than at his feet. No greater gift than this. His word will stand the test of time. His death will bring us life. Where we fall short, he will be strong, until the kingdom comes. His light will overcome the dark. His peace will rule our hearts. The shepherd who became a sheep. His love drives out all fear. Be still and come a little closer to the kid of Bethlehem. The centre of the universe. The saviour of the world.

Kamp Zeist 03:29
Ik ga binnen door de poorten, laat achter al mijn geld, mijn sleutels en mijn paspoort en wat me is verteld. Ik ga zitten aan de tafel die me aangewezen wordt en kijk naar de gezichten hier binnen de poort. De weken werden maanden. Ik leef hier bij de dag. Je hangt aan je gewichten. Zo vlucht je voor de nacht. Ik zie de schaduw in je ogen van wat je overkwam. Maar de brokken van jouw leven zijn niet welkom in dit land. Jij fluistert vol vertrouwen: “I’m locked up but I’m free.” Maar ik wil niet meer naar buiten nu ik jou hier heb gezien. Jij ziet mijn stille woede en hoe alles brandt in mij. Je kruipt in mijn gedachten en we springen overeind. We lopen door de poorten, zonder paspoort, zonder geld. Onzichtbaar en vergeten. zoals ooit is verteld en we rennen langs de muren onze stemmen staan in brand. We juichen en we schreeuwen, we waaien en we sneeuwen. We lopen er zevenmaal omheen, tot de muur valt. We lopen we zevenmaal omheen, tot de muur valt.
