O HOLY NIGHT, THE ALBUM
CHRISTMAS is truly the most wonderful time of the year. It is a season of gift-giving, service, love, and especially music. For this album we have selected some of our most beloved Christmas songs centered on the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His mission. Our hope is that amidst the hustle and bustle of shopping, decorating and wrapping, listening to these timeless melodies and their sacred lyrics will bring greater peace in our lives and remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. We invite you to journey with us to that holy night in Bethlehem and ponder the significance of Jesus’s birth in your own life. May we honor and celebrate Him during this sacred season and always.
