Joy to the World (Unspeakable Joy) – Chris Tomlin

Joy to the World (Unspeakable Joy) by Chris Tomlin

This song is a traditional Christmas carol set to a contemporary, driving beat. It’s also one of my favorites, because it’s so upbeat and joyful! The lyrics talk about how we should be singing with joy and thanksgiving during this time of year, when we are celebrating Jesus’ birth. I love the lyric “God is here! Let Heaven sing!” This reminds us that God is present in our lives now, not just at Christmas or Easter.

The first chorus includes these lines: “Joyful music fills the air / As hearts rejoice with good cheer” – which tells me that even though there are still problems in this world (and throughout history), there has been much joy brought into people’s lives by Jesus’ birth! We can celebrate this because He came – He was sent from Heaven as our Savior from sin; from things like greediness or hatred; from worries about school work or money problems..

Emmanuel – Chris Tomlin

  • The song talks about how God is with us. It’s a reminder that we are not alone, no matter what our circumstances might be.
  • Chris Tomlin wrote the song in 2005 and it quickly became one of his most popular songs.
  • The message of this song is that God is with us in all circumstances, even when things don’t go our way or when we feel like giving up on life or when we feel lost and alone.
  • When I hear this song I think about how much God loves me, even though sometimes I feel like He doesn’t love me at all because I have made so many mistakes in my life! It reminds me that no matter what happens in my life God will always be there for me!

O Come, All Ye Faithful – Lincoln Brewster

As you sing this song during Advent, think about what it means to you. Is there a part of this song that resonates with you? The lyrics are beautiful and hopeful, but also reflect the presence of God. It’s up to each person to decide how much they want to interpret it in their own way.

Many people like singing O Come All Ye Faithful at church because it’s easy to learn and there aren’t many tricky parts in the melody. If you’re looking for something more challenging, check out “Joyful Joyful” by Lincoln Brewster or “I Saw Three Ships” by Hillsong United!

Do You Hear What I Hear? – Sanctus Real

Do You Hear What I Hear? is a song written by Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne Baker. It was first recorded in 1962 by Bing Crosby for his album of Christmas songs, Merry Christmas. The song has been covered by many artists since then, including the band Sanctus Real who recorded it on their 2006 album A Decade.

The lyrics of Do You Hear What I Hear? describe the birth of Jesus through the eyes of shepherds. In addition to being a Christmas song, this tune is also known as “Adeste Fideles” or “O Come All Ye Faithful” (its original title).

O Come, O Come Emmanuel – Matt Maher

Matt Maher is a Christian singer-songwriter from Pennsylvania. He has written many well-known songs, including “Lord, I Need You” and “Your Grace Is Enough.” He also worked closely with Chris Tomlin to produce his album Glory in the Highest: Hymns of Worship.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel is a traditional Christmas carol that dates back centuries. It was written by John Mason Neale, who was inspired by Isaiah 7:14 (a prophecy about Jesus). In this song we learn that God’s faithfulness will never fail us; it will always be there in our darkest times. We can also take comfort in knowing that God is coming soon—and when Jesus comes again on Christmas Day to save us all from sin and death!

O Holy Night – Michael W. Smith

O Holy Night is a Christmas carol composed in 1847 by Adolphe Adam and translated into English by John Sullivan Dwight. It was arranged as a choral composition by Peter J. Wilhousky in the early 20th Century, but was not published until 1987 when it was included in the first edition of The Sacred Harp (see below). In 2001, Michael W. Smith released his recording of O Holy Night to widespread acclaim.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Barlow Girl

The lyrics for this song are:

“God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay. Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day. To save us all from Satan’s power when we were gone astray. Oh tidings of comfort and joy…”

This song is written by the Barlow sisters and it is one of their most famous songs. The history of this song goes back to 17th century Europe where a carol was written called God Rest You Merry Gentlemen (the tune). It was popularized during the Victorian era in Britain, where it became popular again as part of community Christmas celebrations with people singing and dancing around a maypole or other Christmas tree decorations that included candles or lights on them.

Silent Night (with just a couple of words) – Francesca Battistelli

There is a beautiful song called “Silent Night” that is often sung at Christmas. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and it’s sung in both English and German. The song was written by Franz Xaver Gruber in 1818, but it wasn’t published until after his death in 1887 by Dr. Joseph Mohr who wrote the lyrics for the song. The song has been recorded many times over the years, but this version by Francesca Battistelli is my favorite!

Go Tell It On The Mountain – David Crowder Band

Go Tell It On The Mountain is a song originally written by African-American writer and composer James Ramsey Montford in 1872. Although the lyrics are based on the story of John the Baptist, they have been used as a Christmas carol since at least 1923, when it appeared in The Baptist Hymnal as number 347.

John’s baptism was set for December 27th, but Jesus would later ask him to baptize him instead. In this context, “Go tell it on the mountain” is not just an exhortation to spread news far and wide; it also suggests a call for repentance from sinfulness so that all may receive salvation through baptism (John 3:5).

Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room – North Point InsideOut

Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room is about making room for Jesus in your life. Christmas is a time to celebrate and reflect on the birth of Jesus, and this song is a wonderful way to do so. It’s based on an old hymn that dates back to the late 19th century (although there are versions with lyrics dating back even earlier), and it’s been covered by many artists over the years, including North Point InsideOut.

Hallelujah Light Has Come (Christmas Version) – BarlowGirl with Aaron Shust and Building 429’s Jason Roy

Mary Did You Know? – Casting Crowns

Mary Did You Know? is a popular worship song that has become almost synonymous with advent. The song tells the story of Mary, who was visited by an angel and told that she would give birth to Jesus. In response to this news, Mary sings a praise song: “You came to earth in humble way/to serve our need not yours today.” The lyrics of this song are extremely meaningful during this season as they remind us of what Christ did for us by coming down from Heaven and becoming human on earth…

While You Were Sleeping – Casting Crowns

While You Were Sleeping was written by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms, and released in 2004 from the Casting Crowns album Peace on Earth. It is played in the key of G and follows common time with a tempo of 96 beats per minute. The song is about God’s love for us, and how we can trust him to care for us as he protects us through the dark nights of our lives.

Advent is a season to celebrate the birth of Jesus

Advent is a season to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and lasts for four weeks, ending on December 24th with the celebration of Christmas. The word “advent” comes from Latin and means “coming.”

The first Sunday in Advent is known as Gaudete Sunday, or Rejoice Sunday. It’s also known as Candlemass because this day marks the halfway point between Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, and Christmas Day (the third Sunday in Advent).
