25 Songs of Christmas: Day 9 – In The Bleak Midwinter

So rehearsals for our church Christmas play have begun.  It’s a very fun little piece, and the whole family is involved.  Susie is reprising her role as Mary.  Jackson will be Captain America, and I am playing Spiderman.  We’re traditionalists, clearly.   It’s was a lot of fun working with our youth and children today during church.  They all love their roles, and it’s heartening to see all ages so engaged with this project.  The only downside to the time was that because I wasn’t in church, I missed the chance to sing one of my favorite Christmas hymns.  The congregation did “In The Bleak Midwinter,” which isn’t as popular as some of the other standards, but I think it’s every bit as beautiful, and I suffered a moment of sadness at not getting to share it with them.  So, in an attempt to recapture that experience, I’ve chosen to share the song tonight with each one of you.
