25 Songs of Christmas – Come and Worship
I am not a fan of the Santa/holly/sexy christmas songs. I don’t really listen to Christmas on the radio for this reason. I like the old Christmas hymns. I like thinking about people several hundred years in the past facing the same problems and insecurities I face. I like knowing they overcame them by looking the same places I am now. God with us.
That being said, I don’t just listen to the old arrangements. I like when people use the ancient themes to and breathe new life in to them. I like the musical reminders that not only is God still with us, God is still speaking to us, and through us. I like knowing that an unchanging God is still willing and able to do new things to show us love.
Today’s song offers one such reminder. Come and Worship is a Hymn that’s 200 years old, and yet Bebo Norman has used it to put a very modern arrangement together. I quite enjoy the result.
Emmanuel, God with us. Then. Now. Always.
