Video Makes Christmas Reading Come to Life

Edwin Fawcett - published on 12/24/15


The people that walked in darkness has seen a great light.

Christmas is just beginning! Before you pack away the decorations and switch from your Christmas playlist back to your ordinary time tunes, be sure to check out Edwin Fawcett’s brand new lyric video for his song “Deliverance.” The song, like the others on his album “Lift Your Eyes,” takes its inspiration from the book of Isaiah. The video for “Deliverance” brings the first reading of the Christmas Midnight Mass to life with its charming typography and illustrations, all done by Edwin himself. You even get an inside look into the making of the video, down to the obligatory cuppa and advent calendar treats to fuel him through the design process.

The fun-natured video reflects the joy in the Scripture passage: The people that walked in darkness has seen a great light. On those who lived in a land of deep shadow a light has shown. You have made their gladness greater. You have made their joy increase.

We hope you will sit back, relax, and enjoy Edwin’s new video…maybe with your own cup of tea or coffee to fuel you through the 12 days of Christmas.

For more on Edwin Fawcett, check out his website, or head over to iTunes to buy his music.
