Christian Christmas Music

All is Well music by Michael W. Smith, lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick was released on his Christmas studio album released in 1989.

All is well, all is well
Lift up your voice and sing
Born is now Emmanuel
Born is our Lord and Savior
Sing Alleluia, sing Alleluia, all is well…

Joseph’s Song by Michael Card was released on his 1989 Christmas album “The Life”.

How could it be this baby in my arms
Sleeping now, so peacefully
The Son of God, the angel said
How could it be?

Lord, I know He's not my own
Not of my flesh, not of my bone
Still Father let this baby be
The son of my love

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours
How can a man be father to the Son of God
Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter
How can I raise a king, how can I raise a king?

Emmanuel, God with Us performed by Amy Grant, co-written and composed with Chris Eaton and Robert Marshall, was released in 2005 on Amy Grant’s Christian Christmas music album “Home for Christmas”.

We dim the light, we stoke the fire
We breathe the evergreen
Young ones wait while the old ones make up
Tales of how it used to be

China dolls, candy corn, painted wooden toys
Treasures found to the wondrous sound
Of caroling the Savior
Born to us on Christmas morn

God with us
God with us
The son of Israel

Christmas is All in the Heart by Steven Curtis Chapman and performed with Vince Gill was one of the songs on the album “Miscellaneous”. However, it was originally released in 1995 on Steven Curtis Chapman’s “The Music of Christmas” album.

In a one bedroom apartment
On the humble side of town
There stands a little Christmas tree
It looks a lot like Charlie Brown's…

…No, it's not in the snow that may or may not fall
And it's not in the gifts around the tree
It's in the love Heaven gave, that night our Savior came
And that same love can still be found wherever you are

'Cause Christmas is all in the heart
And the joy can still be found, wherever you are
'Cause Christmas is all, all in the heart
It's all in the heart

As you can see, today’s Christian Christmas music still focuses on the birth of Jesus Christ, but often with a look at the people and emotions felt back in that humble stable. They also tend to tell a story that draws you in where you identify because of your own experiences.
