Music captures the joy of the Christmas season and magnifies the name of the anointed King! Listen with your heart and be changed inside out. The writers of traditional Christmas Carols left us with the gospel message set to music! We can also find encouragement, peace, and joy in the words of many contemporary Christmas selections. I have so many favorites, but one that stands out is the Christmas Song. Like Bing Crosby's White Christmas it is a standard, which is recorded over and over by various artists. Each gifted singer seems to add their own personality to create a new appreciation of the Christmas Song.
The original Christmas Song reached God's throne! "And Mary said: My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; for behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name. And his mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy, as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to His seed forever (Luke 1:46-56 NKJ)." Mary's song endures through the generations! The Christmas Song of praise rose to the Father above and fills hungry hearts below!
