Another incredible song by Michael Card. As is typical, perfect word choices combine with great vocals for memorable mental images. From the first time I heard this song,the line "Simeon takes the boy and starts to sing..." has made me continually reflect back to the mindset of Simeon, and the utter joy that he must have felt overflowing within him. Of all the things this old man could have done at that moment...shout, laugh, cry, smile, clap, pray...Michael Card says he began to SING.....perfect!! Amazing imagery.

I don't know if this song was inteneded to be written with a "Messianic" overtone to it or not, and I am sorry if any find it offensive, but maybe it will cause someone to dig a little deeper, and mainstream Jews and Christians will wake up and put aside their dogmatic traditions, and begin to listen to the unbiased Word of God and realize that there is a common thread that binds and unites us (See Hebrews 1-13).

This was my second video, second music montage, and 1st time using Vegas 7.0. Pinnacle is out the window as it is too limiting, and I will continue learning with Vegas.

I hope you enjoy the video, and find the same inspiration from the song as I did.
