10 Favorite Christian Christmas Songs

Christmas is coming and this means many things to different people. Shopping. Baking. Decorating. For Christians, this is a time to reflect on Christ, his sacrifices and how to share His love for others. I love the newer versions of many Christmas songs, but I often go searching for the old classic version of some. I love listening to Christmas music (after Thanksgiving) and often play a blend of old favorites and new renditions by more recent groups.

Here are 10 favorite Christian Christmas song to get you in the holiday spirit.

10. O Come, O Come Emmanuel by Selah

And death's dark shadows put to flight

9. Do You Hear What I Hear? By The Harry Simeone Choir

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear

Ringing through the sky shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear

High above the trees

With a voice as big as the sea

With a voice as big as the sea

6. What Child Is This? by Third Day

Favorite Lyrics

What child is this who, laid to rest

On Mary's lap is sleeping

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet

While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the King

Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing

Haste, haste to bring Him laud

The Babe, the Son of Mary

5. O Little Town of Bethlehem by Nat King Cole

And gathered all above

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

Their watch of wondering love

O morning stars together

Proclaim the holy birth

And praises sing to God our King

And peace to men on earth

4. Angels We Have Heard on High by Andrea Bocelli and David Foster

Favorite Lyrics

Angels we have on heard high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

Angels we have heard on high,

Sweetly singing through the night,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their brave delight.

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gloria in excelsis Deo

3. Silent Night by the Mormon Chapel and Church

Son of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace,

Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

2. Gesu Bambino by Heidi Joy

Favorite Lyrics

O come let us adore him

O come let us adore him

O come let us adore him

Christ the lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows

To greet the holy night,

That gave the world it's christmas rose,

Its king of love and light

Let ev'ry voice acclaim his name,

The grateful chorus swell

From paradise to earth he came

That we with him might dwell.

1. Mary Did You Know by Pentatonix

Favorite Lyrics

Mary, did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations?

Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?

That sleeping child you're holding is the great I am.

Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know?..
