Free Christmas Worship Songs

For many worship leaders across the world, Christmas is a time of challenge and opportunity. Challenge because we need to find ways of presenting the timeless truths of Jesus birth in a fresh way, and opportunity because visitors come to our churches at Christmas like at no other time of year. Often it can be a struggle to find contemporary worship material that engages with both your regular congregation and visitors, which is why I'm pleased to recommend three Christmas worship songs from RESOUNDworship.org, available here. All three songs come with full band recordings, chord charts, lead sheets, piano arrangements, and now full score orchestra and SATB choir as well, all for free download.

Here are the words of one of them:

1. On Christmas day, a humble girl
gives birth to hope for all the world,
this is Immanuel.
How awesome and mysterious,
the Lord of heaven draws near to us,
this is Immanuel.

2. The hands that once split night from day
now feebly clutch a blade of hay,
this is Immanuel.
Majestic king, now small and weak,
the Word of God must learn to speak,
this is Immanuel.

This is our God, seen by our eyes,
the love of the Father made known in Jesus Christ.
This is our God, worthy of praise,
the love of the Father revealed on Christmas day.

3. The shepherds come and bow to him,
the Lamb who takes away our sin,
this is Immanuel.
For God has entered time and space
to show the world his endless grace,
this is Immanuel.

Immanuel, Immanuel. Our God is with us now.
Immanuel, Immanuel. Our God is with us now.

Praying God's rich blessings on you and your congregations this Christmastime.
