New Christmas EP From Chris Tomlin| Posted November 16, 2019
Over the years, Chris Tomlin has given us some excellent Christmas music, primarily through his two full-length Christmas albums 2009’s Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship and 2015’s Adore: Christmas Songs Of Worship. His latest release is Christmas Day: Christmas Songs of Worship, a four song EP. The EP features three new songs, and one classic Christmas song.
Here are a few comments about each song: Christmas Day – This song is written by Ed Cash, Scott Cash, Franni Cash, Martin Cash and Andrew Bergthold. This joyful song features drums, guitar and excellent vocals by Tomlin and We The Kingdom. Classic Tomlin, this song would be a good one for congregational singing.
Key lyrics: Sing all you people The Lord almighty reigns
Sing every creature of God
Come bless His name
For He is good, for He is good
He was born to conquer the grave
Light of the world
The reason for Christmas Day His Name Is Wonderful – This song is written by Tomlin and Ed Cash with a chorus taken from Isaiah 9:6. The song begins with Tomlin singing over piano, and then builds with drums, strings and choir.
Key lyrics: Come and adore Him On bended Knee
He came to Ransom
Someone like me Little Drummer Boy – This Christmas classic was written by Katherine Davis, Henry Onorati and Harry Simeone in 1958. The song features guitar, backing vocals and of course some excellent drum work. Hope Of Israel – This song was written by Tomlin, Ben Fielding, Jason Ingram and Reuben Morgan. The song begins with Tomlin singing over piano, then builds gently with strings and backing vocals.
Key lyrics: God is with us Christ our Savior
Jesus our Emmanuel
He shall reign our King forever
