Description

A 21st-century lyrical twist on a 1st-century story

Singer Jessie Dipper brings us part 2 of Spoken Truth's Christmas project, a song capturing how those first listeners felt hearing this good news that Christmas, 2000 years ago.

Creatively adapted lyrics bring the 'shepherd's' story alive through the eyes of two rough sleepers, and put a fresh twist on the classic carol 'While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night'.

This Christmas, Jesus is good news for everybody and those who reach out to him get to be part of his family. May we be inspired by the shepherds in Luke 2:17-18, who couldn’t help but share this good news for everybody with everybody.
