I know, I know–I’ve posted this song before. But it’s so beautiful. Its only connection to Christmas, really, is that it was part of the score in the 1951 movie version of “A Christmas Carol”–Scrooge, starring Alistair Sim. But in that the theme of that story, and that film, is redemption by the grace of God, that ties it in with Christmas.
So enjoy it. And meanwhile, a prayer.
Father in Heaven, make this Christmas season strong and mighty, to thaw frozen hearts and move us to love Our Lord Jesus Christ, our savior and our king. Give it power to shake and tear down the strongholds of this world, strongholds of pride and unbelief, arrogance and misbelief. Let the light of Christmas blaze forth, and blot out the lies and darkness of this age. O Father! Do as thou hast said. Make Christ’s enemies His footstool, and put the government upon His shoulder forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
