Cool Christmas Song

Now that it is after Thanksgiving, it is ok to listen to Christmas music. I borrowed Chris Tomlin’s new Christmas CD (“Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship) from a friend to listen to. I enjoyed it so much I just bought it off iTunes.

This post is not a plug for the CD, but just wanted to share one of the songs from the CD. It is called “Winter Snow.” The singer (Audrey Assad) has a great voice and the style of the song is cool, but the words are pretty sweet. It compares Jesus’ coming with the arrival of winter snow.

Here are some of the lyrics:

Could’ve come like a mighty storm
with all the strength of a hurricane
You could’ve come like a forest fire
with the power of heaven in your flame

But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below

Could’ve swept in like a tidal wave
or an ocean to ravish our hearts
You could have come through like a roaring flood
to wipe away the things we’ve scarred

But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below

Just thought that was a great way to describe how Jesus arrived. It wasn’t with great fanfare or attention, but quietly, in a very unassuming manner . . . much like a winter snow, quiet and slow . . .
