Favorite Christmas Song: Quote-Worthy Wednesday

Bring Your peace into our violence

Bid our hungry souls be filled

Word now breaking Heaven’s silence

Welcome to our world

Welcome to our world

So wrap our injured flesh around You

Breathe our air and walk our sod

Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God

Perfect Son of God

Welcome to our world

-Chris Rice, Welcome to Our World

Personally, I don’t find my radio dial on that station that started their Christmas music on Halloween and plays round the clock Santa, Frosty, Snow-Snow-Snow! songs.  But I do love when a good Christmas song comes on.  And I think it’s usually good just because it tells the story well.  Not necessarily the literal course of events, but the grand story.  The story of how we were lost and desperate and you gave up heaven to come and be one of us and find us and bring us life.

If you’ve felt short on that this season, maybe it’s worth taking a listen.  (Although I’d also recommend ignoring the video; it’s the least cheesy I could find.  Maybe just turn away from the computer.  Or close your eyes.)

What is your favorite song of this season?
