Christmas Music as Worship Music

I am so thankful for the folks leading out in worship at Believers Church. They are taking Christmas hymns and carols and playing the songs in such a way that the words are coming rich and alive in a new way for me.

On Sunday,these words to “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” jumped out at me.

“Fear not then,” said the Angel,”Let nothing you affright,

This day is born a Saviour Of a pure Virgin bright,

To free all those who trust in Him From Satan’s power and might.”

O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy.

(emphasis mine)

Maybe I was a strange sight, raising my hands in praise during a Christmas carol.
