Song for Advent #20: Meet on the Ledge - Fairport Convention

Richard Thompson, who wrote the song when he was seventeen, says that he isn't sure what this song is about. Meet on the Ledge is the song that concludes most Fairport Convention encores and the underlying theme is of looking forward to a reunion. The song is often played at funerals expressing the hope of being reunited with loved ones. Wishful thinking? Our hope as Christians is not wishful thinking, but a sure and certain hope founded on the Lord Jesus Christ and we look forward to that day when we shall be raised to new life with him.
