This is a song about refugees who seek asylum in another country.

In the Gospel of Matthew in the Bible, in the second chapter verses 13-15, the King James Translation says:

“[B]ehold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.”

This track takes one on a three minute journey of flight, using Scomber’s melodies to retell the story of a Christmastide journey.

Thank you, Scomber,for your delightful songs and samples.
