Songs for a SaviorMany of us have our favorite Christmas carols that center on angels singing songs, shepherds watching flocks, and wise men giving gifts. However, Luke records the very first Christmas songs, sung by Mary, Zechariah and Simeon. Unlike our modern carols, these don’t revolve around the nativity scenes or the events of Christ birth; rather they focus on the Savior himself. In Christ’s birth, God supernaturally breaks into the ordinary naturalness of human history, by revealing himself as the Savior of the world. In these three songs for a Savior, Mary, Zechariah, and Simeon praise the Lord for remembering His people in providing salvation, redemption and mercy. Join Alistair Begg to celebrate the birth of the Savior with the songs sung at His birth.
