Song can be an amazing way to worship during the holidays. Some Christmas songs we have heard so many times we don’t even realize how profound the lyrics are. Try giving a few of these a listen. They may draw your mind and heart to the Lord in a new way this season.
Thanks to Katelyn DiGioia, Mark Yang, Martin Davis, and Hannah Scheidt for contributing to this list.
1.) Behold the Lamb of God by Andrew Peterson
This isn’t just one song, but one of my (Hannah’s) favorite Christmas albums is Behold the Lamb of God by Andrew Peterson. Over the course of the album it tells the story of Christ’s coming, starting in Genesis and ending with His birth. It beautifully illustrates how all of creation was longing for a savior, and how Christ’s birth met that need. It’s a great album to listen to with the whole family. (I’ve noticed kids tend to really like it too.)
2.) “Little Drummer Boy” (A familiar song but the lyrics are underrated)
3.) “Winter Snow Song” by Audrey Assad with Chris Tomlin
4.) “O Come All Ye Faithful” by Mandy Ihrig; A unique take on a classic
5.) Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas Album (for people who don’t think they like Christmas music).
