Alan Jackson Sings Christmas Song ‘The Angels Cried’ With Alison Krauss

Country music legend Alan Jackson and fellow country musician Alison Krauss beautifully performed a tune describing the scene that evening Jesus Christ was born.

Christmas is a delightful time of year. It’s a season for friends and family to gather and celebrate and remember Jesus Christ’s birth, a moment that forever changed the world. No other child’s birth will ever mean as much as that of Jesus Christ. What a joyous, magnificent and marvelous celebration that must have occurred that evening in that lowly stable in Bethlehem!

In the song “The Angels Cried,” Alan Jackson and Alison Krauss attempt to describe that scene in the stable, all who had gathered to take a gander at the child and the significance of Christ’s birth on that holiest of nights. After that child’s birth, the world would never be the same.

The song’s opening verses paint a picture of people and creatures traveling from distances, near and far, to get a glimpse of the child that would save mankind from their sins. The song indicates that those who came to that manger in Bethlehem had no idea what lay ahead for that child. 

Only the angels in attendance that evening knew the child’s destiny, according to the song, which caused them to shed tears as they looked upon that precious and holy scene. 

“It filled their hearts with joy to see
And knowing of His destiny
Came tears of love”

Of course, the wise men who spotted the star in the sky that evening knew who the child was and what He had come to Earth to do. They knew the star meant that the Son of God had been born. They even brought gifts to recognize and celebrate the child. The wise men understood God had sent the child to Earth to save men from their sins. 

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
