quiet Christmas songs
Part of what I don't like about Christmas is hearing the same tired songs every year. But there are a few I do like. One I can't find on video. There's only one station I've heard it on. I've messaged them asking about it but my memory is so vague, they have nothing to go on. It's a man singing, it has an 80's sound, and the chorus is just "the star of Bethlehem, the star of Bethlehem". See? That tells you nothing. If you have ideas, let me know. Meanwhile, here are a few that are not so vague:
Audrey Assad's "Winter Snow" just wrecks me. And this live version is beautiful (after the station intro).
"In the Bleak Midwinter" is ancient -- the poem was written in the late 1800's. I didn't find the song until this Paul Colman Trio version appeared on a Christmas compilation album in 2002. For awhile, I thought I was the only person who knew it. Then last year my dad says, "Have you heard this song?" Oh, that's where I get it. (Audio only in this video.)
The Newsboys had one years back called "Adoration". I loved one of the lines so much I made a Christmas card out of it: "He takes my finger and He won't let go, and He won't let go". Amen. (lyrics video)
