Paul and Hannah McClure released their new Bethel Music EP The McClures Christmas Morning which features a series of excellent songs for this time of the year, including “Christmas Morning,” a live edition.
The songwriter’s note in their description states, “Christmas morning symbolizes the day the world received the best news it had ever heard, that Jesus, the rescuer was coming.”
This song is a celebration of the true meaning of Christmas: the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Its enduring lyrics are very well-written, imaginative, and delivers its message of hope and joy. The accompaniment and arrangement is enjoyable and moves with the lyrics perfectly. A lot of Christmas songs, even ones that I love, make Christmas seem so slow and contemplative. “Christmas Morning” reminds us that Christmas is about celebrating the coming of Christ.

In full disclosure, I attended Bethel’s school of ministry, though to my knowledge I’ve never met the McClures.
