You can’t go wrong with a classic hymn sung by a stunning vocalist like, Carrie Underwood. If you’re one of those people that went to a midnight Christmas Eve service growing up, you might be intimately familiar with this track. The version with Vince Gill playing guitar while Underwood lets her voice fly over the sweet, simple melody will bring tears to your eyes. How Great Thou Art remains one of my all time favorite performances from the singer. Even if I’m a bit bias.
This may not be strictly a Christmas song, but it is a song that can inspire the spirit of the season in all of us. From the power of believing in something bigger than yourself and celebrating your faith, it’s one of those songs that brings us all back to the very real reason behind this season and what it is supposed to be about. So, join me as we take a break from the classic, fun Christmas songs for some spiritual connection and beautiful music.
