The Nativity

For Christmas Eve, two selections. Light A Candle by Avalon is a contemporary alternative for those so desiring.

And with a more traditional bent (musically at least) Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.

Hail Favored One

For Advent Four, Jars of Clay performs Gabriel’s Message. The hymn is a Basque Christmas folk carol about the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary by the archangel Gabriel that she would become the mother ofJesus Christ the Son of God. It was collected by Charles Bordes and then paraphrased into English by Sabine Baring-Gould. It is commonly performed in an arrangement by Edgar Pettman published in his 1892 book Modern Christmas Carols

The video is free for use in worship. Those so desiring may make a donation to St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, 99 Commerce St, Lockbourne, Ohio 43137. Tell them wolfie sent you.

Nothing But a Child

For the Nativity of Our Lord, Christmas Day or the Christmas season, Kathy Mattea’s cover of Nothing But a Child. The song reminds me of the inscrutable ways of the mystery that we call God. Christmas is a surprise a child like feeling of wonder and amazement. The video features, you guessed it, children who in my eyes are always quite the mystery.

I will try to have another Christmas selection up before long, but wolfie’s getting pretty busy. The videos are free to use but, if in the generous spirit of the time, you would wish to make a donation, you can do so to St. John Lutheran Church PO Box 206, Lithopolis, Ohio 43136. Tell them wolfie sent you.
