Sunday Singables: "Christ the Lord is Born Today"

Each Sunday of Advent I'll be featuring a different Christmas song we use in our worship. Hopefully, you'll be introduced to some new and engaging songs that will bring freshness to your personal and corporate worship. (12.2 - O Sing a Song of Bethlehem / 12.9 - Christ the Lord is Born Today / 12.16 - When He Comes / 12.23 - In the First Light)

"Christ the Lord is Born Today" by Mark Altrogge, released on Sovereign Grace's album Savior (2006)

Why I recommend this song for worship-

Christmas is a time of celebration and thanksgiving, but what do we celebrate? Is it simply a huge birthday celebration for Jesus? What we really celebrate is the reason why Jesus was born, to become a Savior for all who are in Him. This song celebrates exactly that. It refers us back to the Old Testament prophecies of Christ's coming as well as the New Testament truths of what Christ accomplished after His birth. The melody behind these great lyrics is joyful and uplifting. It really matches what is being sung about and it is easy to pick up. I also like the fact that it is a guitar driven song with so many others that are piano and/or organ driven. This makes it very fitting for a single person with a guitar to lead or to spread it out with an entire worship team.
