“Watchman Tell Us Of The Night” by Vanessa Joy is on the album “Joy To the World” and can be found here or you can listen to it here in Vanessa Joy’s store or here on youtube. It was written by a Unitarian poet named Sir John Bowring. It is taken from the book of Isaiah chapter 21 as well as Matthew 2:21 “Glory Beaming Star” This star was the same star that wisemen followed to meet the new born child. “Watchman Tell Us Of The Night” is about the vision Isaiah witnessed and talks about setting a watchman to observe the battle that was going on at that time. This hymn is associated with Christmas and with the celebration of the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ. It is a time of waiting, a season of expecting the birth of Jesus as well as His return . Are we anxiously waiting for his return? “The promised day of Israel” Are we ready for His second coming and are we looking forward to it?
What are we doing on a daily basis in preparation for our Saviors return? Do we even contemplate the second coming on a regular basis? “I Wonder When He Comes Again” is a beautiful song I often sang as a Child. What do you do to prepare yourself daily for the second coming of Christ and how does that bring you peace? Please share your comments and thoughts below. I love the message within this beautiful hymn. It is so intriguing, deep and lyrical. I pray as we go through this life, we find ways to live our life the best we know how so that we are ready and looking forward to His second coming.
I am thankful for this time of year. It is a time of reflection as the year closes and another begins. I hope and pray that as you ponder this Christmas, you will find new ways to prepare yourself for the second coming of our Savior. Please share your ideas with me below. As you play this song, let it lead you, let it fill your heart with good cheer. Let Christmas music bless your life.
