This is the first real song I ever wrote, and the first song I published online. I wrote it as a Christmas gift for my family, and never expected that anyone else would ever hear it. But my dad kept asking, “have you done anything with that song?” Eventually, I pulled it out of the drawer and submitted it to a Christian songwriting competition. To my surprise, it won! But I didn’t have plans to do anything else with it.
For months after my dad passed away, I kept hearing him say, “have you done anything with that song?” So, I put together a video with the recording of this song and made my first YouTube post. That’s where my journey began, with this song. I’m so glad I listened to my dad. I hope this song can be as meaningful to you and your loved ones as it has been to me and mine.

Telling the Christmas story in a simple and heart-felt way, this song goes further and asks the question we all need to ask ourselves. Beautifully sung by the composer, this is a powerful Christmas message. What a precious gift (the babe in the manger as well as this inspired song)!
Gorgeous song! Thank you! I needed special music for Christmas. I think this is it. Just what I wanted to say. I love the poetry and linking us to the story.
Thanks again for this wonderful Christmas song...I actually found it a few years ago and downloaded the sheet music last Christmas....Thanks again for sharing it!
