Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Christians love to sing, and I love it that the Bible gives us something to sing about. Have you noticed that some of the very first words of the New Testament are the very first songs of the very first Christmas? There’s:

  • Elizabeth’s Song
  • Mary’s Song
  • Zechariah’s Song
  • The Angels’ Song—two songs really
  • Simeon’s Song

These songs of Christmas are God-centered, not self-centered, and they speak less to what Christmas does for us, and more to what Christmas reveals about the glory and goodness of God.

Over the next few weeks here on Seeking Him, we’re going to take a closer look at those first songs of Christmas. I hope you’ll be encouraged to lift up your eyes the way each of those participants in the first Christmas did, with your gaze fixed on our great God and Savior . . .  our Christmas song, Jesus.
