Songs for a SaviorMany of our favorite Christmas carols center on angels singing songs, shepherds watching flocks, and wise men giving gifts. These songs, however, are meaningless apart from their context within redemptive history. The Gospel of Luke records the very first Christmas songs, which were sung by Mary, Zechariah and Simeon. Unlike our modern carols, these songs of praise don’t revolve around the nativity scene or the events of Christ birth. Instead, they focus on the Savior Himself.
