What’s your favorite?
Great choices – and I loved hearing “How Many Kings” st the service yesterday! My personal MUST for the Christmas season is Michael card’s The Promise – title song and Joseph’s Song in particular – but it is a very worshipful, deeply meaningful entire recording. NEED it @ Christmastime!
While you Were Sleeping by Casting Crowns is my favorite song. The message in the song is so powerful. It touches my heart everytime I hear it. Andrew did a great job singing it last week. :)
I thought Julie sang a beautiful song of “How Many Kings”
Some great selections (love The Alarm!). But I must know…did you forget Todd Agnew’s In the First Light?? If not, what number is it? :)
