Here we come a-caroling
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wand’ring,
So fair to be seen.
Yes, it is the season to be caroling, to find songs to help us celebrate. To make a joyful noise with each other. The fun, the jolly-ness. It’s good, isn’t it? I just love singing good songs (and silly ones too) with loved ones.
You know what else it is though? It’s also the season to take time. To find songs to help us really remember Christmas, you know… the spiritual significance to the season. These songs help us remember that God made a promise, then kept it! God made a sacrifice so that we could be brought back to him.
Songs that help us remember
Every year on my blog I blog about these songs. Sharing the lyrics, the author, and this year adding thoughts about the songs themselves. I find this draws me more into considering the gift given.
A child born, a promise kept. One of my favourite songs. I don’t know WHY I like this song so much, but I do. 🙂
- What Child is This
- O Little Town of Bethlehem.
- Silent Night.
- Mary’s Boy Child.
- Hail to the Lord’s Anointed.
- Come thou, Long-expected Jesus.
- The Race that Long in Darkness Pined.
- Away in the Manger.
The news spread. Angels, shepherds,
- How Great our Joy.
- Angels from the realms of Glory.
- Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
- Go Tell it on the mountain.
The future promise
