Rushing somewhere, the familiar chords of "O Holy Night" filled my car and caused me to pause deeply as Lauren Daigle sang, Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace.

And in that moment, my busy self-focused mind stopped for just a minute. Love one another. Oh, that's right. Like He taught us. The most humbling thought. Music has a way of reminding us.  

Curious, what songs are you singing this Advent and Christmas season? Any new favorites? Older songs that speak anew? 


During Advent we sing songs about Jesus' second coming:

   Sing to the King (LUYH 474)

   Love Divine, All Loves Excelling (LUYH 351)...perhaps my favorite hymn

   Soon and Very Soon (LUYH 482); we do this every year as the last song on the 4th Sunday of Advent

During our Candlelight Service we'll be having a few musicians sing some songs from the album "In the Town of David" by Ordinary Time.  And we've had kids sing songs from the "Waiting Songs" album by Rain for Roots.
