After four weeks of Advent, it can sometimes be difficult to sustain the 12 Days of Christmas all the way through to the great feast of The Epiphany on 6th January. Partly because the Christmas songs and carols start LONG before Christmas day actually arrives.
We thought we’d help keep the spirit of Christmas alive by sharing our 12 Days of Christmas playlist. We’ve got a special song for each day to keep our hearts focused during these days of the great festival of the Incarnation.
DAY 1. A King Is Born – Jo Boyce & Friends
For a King is born to save us
And this King, he is called Emmanuel.
He came to bring a kingdom
to this tired and violent world;
Let him reign, oh let him reign.
DAY 2. Love Shone Down – Boyce & Stanley
“Oh and Love shone down
over the hills and over the valleys.
Oh and Love shone down
over the world…”
DAY 3. This Is Love – Kathryn Scott & Paul Baloche
“This is Love… This is love.
Incarnate King. Begotten Son
This is Love… This is love.
That you choose to make your home in us”
DAY 4. O Holy Night – Jo Boyce
“Fall on your knees;
O hear the angel voices.
O night divine…
O night when Christ was born”
DAY 5. Glory (Let There Be Peace) – Matt Maher
“One star burns in the darkness
Shines with the promise, Emmanuel
One child born in the stillness
Living within us, Emmanuel”
DAY 6. This Promise is for You – Boyce & Stanley
“Then came the final sign
In the Lord’s most favoured time
A King, God’s Son, the Holy One
This promise is for you…”
DAY 7. Hail Mary (Rolinson) – Boyce & Stanley
“For you bore for us
our blessed Jesus;
Fruit of your body
as God became a man”
DAY 8. Mary Did You Know – Pentatonix
“Mary, did you know that your baby boy
is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
would one day rule the nations?”
DAY 9. Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)
God incarnate, here to dwell.
Praise his name, Emmanuel”
DAY 10. Heaven’s Final Word – Boyce & Stanley
“Living here among us,
Heaven’s final word;
And still we wait for him
to come again…”
DAY 11. Adore – Chris Tomlin
“You stepped down from heaven,
Humbly you came;
God of all creation, here with us”
DAY 12. We Have Seen the Light – Boyce & Stanley
“And we bring him gifts;
Lay our live before him.
That is all we have;
Come, let us adore him”
