Songs that exemplify the spirit of Christmas
I was thinking it might be neat today to each share a thought about a song that isn’t a typical Christmas carol / song but, to us, exemplifies the meaning or spirit of Christmas.
I’ll start things off with one that occurred to me today:
“God Himself the Lamb” (Cathedrals). The lyrics of the second verse say:
“Then the promise rang
Unto Bethlehem this God reached down to man
And gave to us the only Son He had
Then when His time had come
With His precious blood He sealed redemption’s plan
And God provides Himself a Lamb”
Most songs we tend to think of as Christmas favorites are upbeat, joyful songs. This song is more somber, reminding us what a gift God gave to us some two thousand years ago.

Sony’s thoughts: The first song that comes to my mind is one we typically think of around Easter but I think it’s a great Christmas song as well.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives
The miracle of Christmas is not just in Jesus’ birth; the miracle lies in the fact that He still lives over 2,000 years later. Because of that fact, we can face every uncertain day that lies ahead full of faith and victory. Merry Christmas!
