The Greatest Gift http://chirb.it/DyIk27

Our Family Christmas song.
I sing and our oldest son sings back up, our youngest son plays the bass, and my husband does everything else.
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

Christmas Tree Jesus Christ

The Greatest Gift

As I lay down my head to rest

I’m thinking about all the ways I’ve been blessed

Thinking about all you given to me

Your love, a warm home and a family


When we come together on Christmas Day

We’ll read from Your Word on Matthew’s First page

About the night in Bethlehem

A son was born, God’s gift to men


The wise men they followed a star from the east

Seeking the wonders that God would bring

They came bearing frankincense, myrrh and gold

And they worshipped the King that the prophets foretold


Then we will read the second chapter of Luke

He was born in a stable, for the Inn had no room

His mother wrapped Him in swaddling clothes

This child the King, fit for royal robes


The shepherds they watched o’er their flocks by night

When an angel came to them shining bright, he said,

“Do not be fearful, for behold A Savior is born, He is Christ the Lord.


Glory to God in the Highest, Glory to God on His throne

Glory to God in the Highest

A Savior is born, He is Christ the Lord!


As we gather ‘round the Christmas tree

I’ll think of the gifts that You’ve given to me

And the Greatest gift of all given so long ago

Our God and Savior, Christ the Lord

Our God and Savior, Christ the Lord!

Wow! You've got quite a musical family. No one in my family can sing. Although my husband thinks he can sing.

You and your family are so wonderfully blessed and talented! You are a blessing to others. I loved your vocal, the background and all the different guitar pieces. And did I hear a mandoline?! What a great touch. Thank you.

Praise God Blue

Good ear foxnfeathers...my husband, Brad, played the part to sound like a mandolin, but it was on his Martin Acoustic. He was quite pleased with the sound he got out of it.
He actually wrote the song one winter when he was out of work and got a temp job marking trees in the forest. He lived in a small trailer for a month at a time and was reminiscing about home and Jesus.

He is definitely a great musician and song writer. I hope your music is being exposed to many others for their blessings (and always God's glory!) Even the recording quality I hear is great.
Thank you all for your commitment to God in your music.
