1. Mary's Song

Against a backdrop of stars, Mary holds baby Jesus and sings of her love for him, and her hopes and fears for the future.

1. We are the angels

The heavenly angels appear to the all-night mechanics, "doing repairs, watching over and tending their vehicles".

2. Please believe me guys!

Sam has to convince his pals that they were real angels, not "students from the college having a lark." He succeeds and they go in search of the newborn baby.

3. Angel, don't leave us now

One angel says she is fed up with all the extra work and no overtime. The others join together to persuade her not to defect.  

5. Let him in

With everyone gathered around Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus, the angels appear in a blaze of light. Everyone joins in with this modern carol - to end the nativity on a rousing chorus.
