Chico the Car Guard, a Shepherd Chosen by Angels

December 24, 2009

(ChattahBox)—From the far corners of the Innertubes, a special Christmas Carol awaits, starring Chico the car guard. For your holiday pleasure, I now leave you with a special version of “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks,” provided courtesy of Su Rolland of ITeams Ministries.

Roland was inspired by her church car guard, named Chico who “…is the first to admit he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.”

Roland decided that car guards like Chico are the equivalent to the biblical shepherds whom were chosen by angels to be the first to worship the baby Jesus:

“Now, I told Chico, God sent the big announcement through the appearance of the angelic hosts. And to whom does He grant the privilege of being the first to go see and worship the baby king? A bunch of shepherds!”

“I explained to Chico that shepherds back then were sort of like car guards in today’s world. People often overlook or look down on car guards. They aren’t granted much prestige in society. But, God sent His angels to announce Jesus’ birth to a group of car guards! I had Chico close his eyes and imagine what it would be like to have an angel appear and say, “Forget about the cars! I’ve got something way better for you. I’ve chosen YOU, Chico, to be the first to see the newborn Son of God, and to fall at His feet in worship. I’m not even going to tell the car owners about Him right now. It’s most important that I tell YOU!”

Roland’s rewritten version of “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks,” not only stars Chico the car guard, but also features angels speaking with a Texan twang:

“While Chico watched
Our cars by night,
Seated on the low brick wall,
The angel of the Lord declared,
‘”Have no fear, God’s with y’all.
The Lord is with y’all.”‘ […]

I am just a humble car guard, Lord,
Living here in San Jose,
But I cry with joy and here I go,
Grateful You chose me today,
That You chose me today.

Just imagine humble Don Chico,
Kneeling at the Savior’s feet,
While the people look for their nice cars,
Chico’s wealth cannot be beat,
His wealth cannot be beat!”
