We presented our Choral Christmas program today. There were six songs from Hallelujah! Light Has Come, A Christmas Choral Collection plus another five from a prior year's book, Gloria. We have a choir of about 17 people, four bass, three tenor, five altos and five sopranos, plus three more for the Christmas special when our Pastor sings special and our pianist and organist join in. We have some fantastic voices with seven different people singing solos and duets! Then we have those of us who love to 'make a joyful noise' to one degree or another.
The songs this year have been beautiful, though some were challenging with the echos. Our music director added some narration that enhanced the program.
I chose this song to share today. It is truly beautiful plus it leads to praise.
Hallelujah, Light Has Come
20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Heavenly Father, Almighty God, I thank you and praise you for sending your only son to find us in our sin and deliver us through His own sacrifice. Please help me to focus on hope, joy, praise and love this Christmas season.
