Podcast Episode #4: Song in the Air

Our first non-band member guest!  This week Zach Bolen of Citizens & Saints joins us to talk about "Song in the Air."  In fact, our conversation went a lot longer than we expected, and Dan even joined in to interview Zach for awhile as well.  We excerpted a short part of that conversation and included it in the main episode, but we also kept the full uncut conversation and are releasing that as well, as a bonus episode.  Scroll down below to hear the full 1-hour conversation between Dan and Zach.

Don't forget, the pre-order for our album is now available.  And here (or here on iTunes) is the main episode:

OUR LYRICS:

There’s a song in the air, there’s a star in the sky
There’s a mother’s deep prayer and a baby’s low cry
And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing

There’s a shouting of joy at the wonderful birth
For the virgin’s sweet boy is the Lord of the earth
And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing

In the light of that star lie the ages
Impearled in their glory
And that song from afar
Has swept over the world with its story

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

There's a song in the air!
There's a star in the sky!
There's a mother's deep prayer
and a baby's low cry!
And the star rains its fire
while the beautiful sing,
for the manger of Bethlehem
cradles a King!

There's a tumult of joy
o'er the wonderful birth,
for the virgin's sweet boy
is the Lord of the earth.
Ay! the star rains its fire
while the beautiful sing,
for the manger of Bethlehem
cradles a King!

In the light of that star
lie the ages impearled;
and that song from afar
has swept over the world.
Every hearth is aflame,
and the beautiful sing
in the homes of the nations
that Jesus is King!

We rejoice in the light,
and we echo the song
that comes down through the night
from the heavenly throng.
Ay! we shout to the lovely
evangel they bring,
and we greet in his cradle
our Savior and King!
