The Christmas Countdown: Magical Animation

"This Christmas, return to the heart of it all. http://321course.com/ Words: Glen Scrivener Director: Nate Morgan Locke Music: Josh Lucas Lead Animator: Andy Toovey Text Animation: Timothy Last Illustrator: Laura Sewall Words below: Long lay the world in bleak midwinter pining, From Adam’s fall declining, Sorrow mining, hope resigning, Yet this song to heav’n inclining: Come, O Come, Immanuel, And ransom captive Israel, Descend and all our dark, dispel, Be pleased as man with man to dwell. This countdown to the First Noel, They did foretell, The prophets preached, Immanuel— “God with us”, come to break the spell. So lo within that manger lies, He who built the starry skies. Surprise! That’s GOD with us: the Royal Son, The Second of the 3-in-1. 3 is first when counting down, the Father, Son and Spirit bound, Before all things, behind, above, A unity: Joy, Hope and Love. Then sent by Love and filled with Joy, God’s Hope became a baby boy. See him lying on a bed of straw, The little LORD Jesus whom angels adore. And all will surely ask: what for? When Adam’s ruin beckoned, God sent down a 2nd. Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing— Christ was volunteering, Human nature commandeering. Adam’s life he would re-do. This: the meaning of the 2. The 2nd of the 3 became the 2nd of humanity. And he would do it right, and bear our wrongs, And take our curse where it belongs. And rise again like morning sun, And ask us all, Will you be 1? What child is this, shares our abyss, That we might share in all that’s his? Made 1 with us that we might be United for eternity. So joy to the world, the Lord is come. Good tidings sing in 3, 2, 1." from video introduction
