I started off my Christmas season by attending the Epcot World Showcase Candlelight Processional. Gary Sinise was the narrator, and as he narrated Luke 2, it was obvious that this wasn’t about him. He has been doing this for 10 years. I really enjoyed it.
I just wanted to post this beautiful Christmas hymn, which has been offered for free download from my favorite composer, Rob Gardner.
My favorite part is the last verse:
We rejoice in the light, and we echo the song
Coming down through the night from the heavenly throng.
And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!
There are many Christmas hymns and songs, but there are some that just reach into the core of my heart and melt it. And then I want to change the world. That’s how I feel when I hear The Messiah.
Or this version of the First Nowell, arranged by Mack Wilberg and angels:
It’s the last verse that moves me every time:
Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made Heaven and earth of nought
And with his blood mankind has bought.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
“Bring Him Home” from the Christmas Concert. Pure heaven:
I love this 32 finger version of “Angels We Have Heard On High”, because it focuses on the joy of Christmas:
And, I love this beautiful Nigerian carol. It makes my heart dance:
Hope you enjoyed some of my favorites!
