Story Behind the Song

The song appeared on the 2002 CD entitled City on a Hill: It’s Christmas Time. The song was performed by many of the artists with other songs on the CD including Jars Of Clay, Leigh Nash, Michael Tait, Third Day, Caedmon’s Call and Out Of Eden.

Commentary & Analysis

Though there is nothing in this song that gives me pause for concern, it is not what I would call as theologically deep as some of the other songs in our Christmas Carol Advent, but I like it nonetheless. Essentially, what we find in this song is a glorious celebration of Christmastime. I could attempt to draw out some truths from the song and expound on them, but today let’s just take this opportunity to enjoy this song and reflect on the birth of our glorious King!

Questions for Further Reflection / Devotion

  1. Why do you believe that the idea of “peace” has become so wrapped up with Christmas? Do you think this is a good thing? Why, or why not?
  2. How often do you think about the birth of Christ outside of the Christmas season?
  3. This song reminds us that the angels sing praise to God. As a family, sing some Christmas Carols together to reflect on the birth of Jesus.
