During the holidays the musical tunes of the season are everywhere. Their nostalgic melodies warm our hearts. But the original Christmas songs are different; they lift our hearts to a holy God. They reveal the greatness, glory, and goodness of our Saviour. Taking us beyond quaint imagery and feel-good lyrics, the Advent songs of the Bible unfold God's redemptive plan for the world and His eternal purpose for the ages.
Reflecting her own love for the season, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth offers meditations on the first two chapters of Luke's gospel in The First Songs of Christmas. This 31-day Advent devotional shines new light on the ancient yet inspiring songs of Elizabeth, Mary, Zechariah, the angels, and Simeon.
These readings will lead you to contemplate the loveliness and essence of Christmas. Let this book be your companion as you spend the days surrounding Christmas the way these men, women, and angels did, your gaze fixed on our great God and Saviour.
