Lyric For The Day 24.12.10 from Freedom Hangs Like Heaven by Iron & Wine

Iron and Wine 

“Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone
Ain't nobody knows what the newborn holds
But a dollar says he'll lick that devil
And do it alone”

          From Freedom Hangs Like Heaven by Iron And Wine

My Christmas Eve Lyric For The Day is a very late discovery of my own. Samuel Beam’s Iron And Wine turned this little poetic gem out about the Christmas story in 2005. It sums up beautifully what those shepherds and magi must have seen in that first Christmas night. The idea that “freedom hangs like heaven over everyone” has all the theological import of incarnation and the love, grace, hope and peace that the angels sang about. Ultimately, freedom comes where those other things are present and there they all are in a little bundle of skin and flesh lying in the crib!
