Every year, around this time, I start to get an itch for some Christmas music, and I always go back and forth because I don’t want to be sick of it before Christmas actually rolls around.
Besides the basic warm fuzzies that Christmas music usually brings, I love it because it is usually so worshipful.
Good Christmas songs are songs about Jesus.
They are songs about how God put on flesh and came to earth.
“Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” is a great example of this. The song is really a hymn that was written by Charles Wesley, a great reformation preacher. It has stanzas like this:
Christ, by highest Heav’n adored;
Christ the everlasting Lord;
Late in time, behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th’incarnate Deity,
Pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
Jesus our Emmanuel.
“Hail The Incarnate Deity”, and His name is Jesus! That’s what Christmas is all about!
So, that’s why I’m excited to let you know about a new Christmas album that came out this week.
It’s called, “On The Incarnation“, by Daniel Renstrom and friends, and is inspired by the book with the same title — all about the incarnation of our God!
It has four new songs about the incarnation of Jesus, and some really nice renditions of four historically classic Christmas songs.
Lemme know what you think!
