Until I read the recent article about The Piano Guys partnering with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) on a new Christmas project, I had never heard of them. I was blown away by how soothing and spiritual their sound is. It was one of those moments that carries you away as you listen. When I watched it, I read through some of the comments and an athiest even commented on how moved he was. I rank it as the best song I’ve heard this year. If you haven’t had a chance to see the video yet, here it is:
Other Christmas songs that move me during the Christmas Season are by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The first time I really paid attention to the songs, “For Unto Us a Child is Born” and “Hallelujah” was as a young Mormon missionary in Germany in the mid-’90s. I purchased Handel’s “Messiah” and would listen to that cd over and over again. Every time I hear both of these songs, not only do I feel the Lord’s presence, but my mind goes back to my mission and how each day was dedicated to serving the people of Germany and lifting them up through Christ’s message.
Versions of each song are included below:
There are so many great versions of Christmas Songs out there. Please share in the comments your favorites and links to them so we can all enjoy.
In conclusion, I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas. I pray that we all enjoy spending time with our friends and family and also spend time serving those who may need a little of the Lord’s hope in their lives. I also pray blessings on each of you during this Christmas season and always.
