How about some new music today. You will have to have Spotify or iTunes to get this one. Take a listen to this little tune from Over the Rhine’s new album Blood Oranges in the Snow. The song is Another Christmas. It’s not a traditional Christmas hymn, but it is full of nice sounds and powerful lyrics like these
‘Cause we’ve committed every sin
And each one leaves a different scar
It’s just the world we’re living in
And we could use a guiding star
I hope that we can still believe
The Christ child holds a gift for us
Are we able to receive
Peace on earth this Christmas
As we skirt through December, let us remember the importance of the guiding star that led us to the little bundle of salvation called the baby Jesus. And let us have Peace on Earth this Christmas!
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2 KJV
