Jesus Is the Reason for the Season: Make a Playlist to Celebrate

Between the tinsel and festive gift wrap, the Christmas cookies and the mistletoe, it's all too easy during the busy holiday season to become distracted by all that is bright and shiny. It's too easy to forget the purpose of Christmas.

Even those among us who are spiritual but not religious probably have fond memories of once attending Christmas church services or participating in a church play or performance as a child. (My younger brother was once a reluctant wise man.)

Celebrate the reason for the season with a playlist of favorite religious Christmas songs by popular pop, rock, country, R&B, and contemporary Christian artists. We have a long list of good ones to start you out.

Be honest. What's your favorite part of Christmas?

1. "Noel" by Chris Tomlin (featuring Lauren Daigle)

This contemporary Christian Christmas song from 2015 celebrates the birth of Jesus. It was written by Chris Tomlin and performed by Lauren Daigle, whose voice is simply inspired. An unsuccessful American Idol contestant in 2010 and 2012, she became a popular Grammy-nominated Christian artist within five years. Listen to this song and you'll understand why.

2. "Away in a Manger" by Martina McBride

Country singer Martina McBride was introduced at a CMT Awards ceremony as “one of the greatest voices ever created by God.” Although this 1998 Christmas carol doesn't showcase her range, she performs it exquisitely.

"Away in a Manger" was first published in the late 1800s throughout the English-speaking world and commonly misattributed to German theologian Martin Luther. It is now believed to be entirely American in origin, however.

3. "Mary's Boy Child" by Boney M

Here's another celebration of the birth of Christ which set the world aglow and made heaven's angels sing. This Christmas song is non-traditional, an upbeat 1981 calypso tune sung by German group Boney M. The group was internationally popular during the disco era.

4. "Angels We Have Heard on High" by Pentatonix

In this Christmas carol, the angels exclaim, "Glory to God in the highest." They gleefully celebrate the newborn King with sweet melodies that exalt the momentous event.

Derived from a French song, this Christmas favorite has been recorded by artists as diverse as REO Speedwagon, The Carpenters, and Christina Aguilera so you definitely have your pick of singers. The a capella group Pentatonix 2012 offers a laudable version.

5. "O Holy Night" by Josh Groban

Josh Groban delivers a masterful performance in his 2002 version of this traditional Christmas carol. It paints the setting for the night of the Savior's birth, describing the manger scene, the wise men, and the hope that Jesus brought to the world.

Especially in these troubled times, it is meaningful to turn to the message of redemption offered in this song:

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.

6. "The First Noel" by Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's 2007 cover of this simple, joyous Christmas carol lends a light, airy quality to it. The song commemorates the holy birth, describing with wonder the bright Star of Bethlehem.

7. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Barenaked Ladies (featuring Sarah McLachlan)

How ironic that a group named "Barenaked Ladies" can deliver such a memorable performance of this Christmas song, but it absolutely works, particularly with the angelic vocals offered by Sarah McLachlan. If you've never listened to their 2004 rendition, stop what you're doing and give it a try. Together they have transformed one of the oldest Christmas carols (dating to the 16th century or before) into one that fits seamlessly with contemporary culture.

8. "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" by Amy Grant

She may not have the high flying voice of Mariah Carey, but the versatile pop, Christian, country, and pop artist Amy Grant does a lovely job in her 1983 version of this hymn. Dating back to the 1700s, the Christmas song was originally slow and solemn. It also contained several now-deleted verses about Jesus redeeming the entire environment rather than focusing on humanity alone. (I wish they had retained those verses.)

9. "Silent Night" by Kelly Clarkson (featuring Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire)

Listening to this Christmas song, one can almost imagine being in the hushed presence of the newborn Savior. The song highlights the tranquility of the manger setting as the blessed infant is urged to "sleep in heavenly peace."

The 2013 rendition by original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, backed up by two divas of country music, is powerful. "Silent Night" is so culturally significant to Christianity that it was named by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage in 2011.

10. "O Come All Ye Faithful" by Anne Murray

This Christmas hymn is a birth announcement that beckons the faithful to Bethlehem to celebrate the arrival of the newborn King. The richly textured voice of Canadian pop and country singer Anne Murray provides a beautiful 1988 cover of this traditional tune.

11. "The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong

Some might call this original Christian song from 2000 sappy although others may consider it bittersweet and touching. Told from the perspective of a bystander, the Christmas song recounts the tale of a poor little boy who seeks to buy his dying mother a pair of shoes she had been wanting. As he attempts to make his purchase, the child comes up short, but the stranger helps him out so that the boy's mother can have the pair of shoes she wanted in case she met Jesus that night.

12 Ideas for Keeping the Christ in Christmas

 
1. Set up a Nativity scene in a prominent area of your home. As a family, discuss what Mary, Joseph, the wise men, innkeepers who had no room, and others must have been thinking or feeling.
2. Invite someone who would otherwise be alone to spend Christmas dinner with you. Or go to them, taking them dinner (e.g., nursing home resident, shut-in).
3. Create a gratitude or blessings chain. From Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, have each family member secretly write one thing they are thankful for on a slip of brightly colored paper. Assign one color for each family member. Create a paper chain, with the writing facing inwards. As a part of your Christmas Eve or Christmas Day celebration, read aloud each thought of gratitude or blessing.
4. Educate your children about the symbols of Christmas and what they mean.
5. Attach a synopsis of the legend of the candy cane to individual candy canes. Distribute to friends as well as strangers.
6. Listen to religious Christmas songs. If you don't know all the words, learn them. Share a playlist with someone you care about.
7. Attend midnight mass/Christmas Eve services or a religious Christmas performance.
8. Give to those in need. Bake homemade dog biscuits for the local animal shelter or start a food and toy drive for homeless animals. Donate toys to a battered women's shetler or toiletries and blankets to a homeless shelter.
9. Anonymously give a single mother a gift card to a supermarket, gas station, or retailer like Walmart or Target. Include a note of inspiration and encouragement.
10. Select nativity books for children and read them as a family.
11. Take current events or dilemmas from life and discuss with your family, "What would Jesus do?" Give it a Christmas spin by selecting holiday scenarios.
12. Collect flat stones and paint them solid red or green. Then paint (or ModPodge) words of faith and inspiration. Leave them in random public places for strangers to find (e.g., at the ATM machine, on restaurant tables).

12. "Hallelujah (Light Has Come)" by BarlowGirl

This all-female Christian rock group memorializes the birth Christ in this 2008 Christmas song:

Hallelujah! We've been found
A child is born to save us now
Jesus, Hallelujah light has come
A savior set us free.

13. "Go Tell It on the Mountain" by Dolly Parton

Backed up by a choir, country singer Dolly Parton delivers a rousing performance in the 1990 release of this traditional African American spiritual describing the nativity scene. In a celebratory manner, the song encourages the listener to spread the good news of the Savior's birth.

14. "Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)" by Amy Grant

With its Celtic influences, this 1992 Christian song doubles as a Christmas tune, too. It details the Virgin Mary's thoughts and feelings as she faces impending birth. She is cold, weary, frightened, and confused. Wondering if she is up to the challenge, she asks God for help as the future unfolds.

15. "Mary, Did You Know?" by CeeLo Green

A modern Christmas classic, this tune addresses Mary and asks whether she foresaw that her son would be the Redeemer of mankind. Although recorded by various country, pop, and Contemporary Christian artists, I like this 2012 R&B version because it perfectly showcases CeeLo Green's versatility as an artist. The tune was featured on the 2014 soundtrack for the movie, "Son of God."

16. "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" by Norah Jones

This traditional Christmas carol is different in that it doesn't focus on the nativity but rather on war and peace. Singing against the background of a conflicted and pained world, the angels spread their wings and strum their harps. They call for peace and goodwill to all. Norah Jones' 2012 jazz-influenced rendition of this Christmas song is simply dazzling.

17. "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" by Sarah McLachlan

This popular Christmas carol concentrates on a description of the setting in which Jesus was born—Bethlethem and its dark, still streets contrasted against the light of the guiding star that announces the birth of Christ. In her 2006 verion, Sarah McLachlan's voice is so heavenly it simply floats, perfectly capturing the emotion of the setting she describes.

18. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" by Whitney Houston

No one could match the heavenly voice of Whitney Houston when she was in her prime. This 1995 release by the late pop diva lends an impressive vocal range to the 1962 Christmas song. It was written about the threat of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis and features a little lamb telling a little shepherd boy to pray for peace.

19. "I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day" by Casting Crowns

This Christmas song is based on a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow during the era of the American Civil War. Wadsworth endured personal heartbreaks, including a house fire that left him severely burned and killed his beloved wife. He was also left crestfallen by his son's sudden enlistment in the war and subsequent battle wounding.

The song initially echoes the poet's personal despair: "For hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, goodwill to men." However, it then takes a more joyous turn with the rediscovery of hope:

God is not dead, nor doth he sleep,
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.

The 2008 rendition of this song by contemporary Christian group Casting Crowns is splendid, particularly with a children's choir as backup.

20. "A Baby Changes Everything" by Faith Hill

A contemporary Christmas song that was written by the singer, this 2008 religious holiday song concentrates on Mary's perspective. The opening stanzas describe an unwed

Teenage girl, much too young
Unprepared for what's to come.

It isn't until the middle of the song that the listener learns that the young mother-to-be is actually Mary. With the birth of the newborn King, she appreciates that a baby changes everything.

      Yves - My thoughts exactly. Why all of a sudden have a problem with the series starting with the one that has Jesus quotes and photos? Oh well.

      I hope you and yours have a fabulous Thanksgiving with all of the best there is to offer. I'm usually so excited that on Thanksgiving I already have the Christmas decorations down from the attic and can barely wait. Sounds like you have beat me to it with your gift wrapping! Of course, I only have one child (a teen who will leave the nest soon), but I volunteer a lot with 200 teens at her school. So fun this time of year!

      Flourish, I'm disappointed that HP would refuse you unless... Times have changed in so many ways. You are very selfless to leave things as they are. Well then... phooey on them!! Your lists and everything else on this hub were great!

      Have a Happy Thanksgiving, my dear lady. Today I wrapped a bunch of Xmas presents. I'm ready to party...and give thanks for the reason for the season. :)

      A great list of songs, thanks for sharing. The music of the season puts joy in my heart. One local station started playing Christmas songs the first week of November; which is a bit early for some, but I enjoy them.

      I really appreciated your List of Ideas, especially #9: Helping out a single mom. As for the Xmas songs, there are so many to choose from. Yay! My favorite might be "Joy to the World" because it's so doggone happy and uplifting. As always, another wonderful list, Flourish.

      Catherine - I love your candor and practicality. I don't have religious feelings, especially Christian ones like my siblings, but I wrote this for many of my readers who do feel the special religious meaning of Christmas. I do like those songs though for the same reasons you do. It reminds me of my childhood. The closest I come to spirituality is in nature.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

      I love the songs of Christmas, all of them. For years we decorated our Christmas tree to the strains of Emily Lou Harris singing Little Drummer Boy because we had a little drummer boy ornament that was the first item we placed on our tree. Nothing says Christmas for me now quite like Emily Lou Harris singing Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.

      Another wonderful collection of songs. I personally feel no Christmas would be complete without religious songs.

      With so much commercialization during the holiday season, these songs make everyone stop and reflect.

      I think people can be too adamant one way or the other. Both religious and non-religious songs have always played in our household.

      Great list and timely for people to get their Christmas playlist in order.

      Even though I'm more of a "Happy Holidays" person (you never know what the person beside you believes in), I can't help but congratulate you on this list.

      Good followup to the non-religious holiday tune list! While most of my faves on that list, I gotta admit that my fave versions of the religious classics are Barbra Streisand's Christmas album renditions of Silent Night, Ave Maria, and The Lord's Prayer. Hard to believe that album is about 50 years old. Yikes!

      Anyway, great list, as always! If I don't connect prior, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

      Children waiting for Santa with excitement and glee

      a little boy tugged my sweater looked up asking me

      Where is the line to see Jesus? Is he here at the store?

      If Christmas is his birthday, why can't we see him any more.

      Wonderful list, as always. I'm going to focus on a tangent that bothers me regarding Merry Christmas vs Happy Holidays.

      There is nothing anti-Christian with using the term Happy Holidays. There are a boatload of holidays this time of year.

      I tend to tell people Merry Christmas when they're celebrating Christmas on Chrismas or Christmas Eve. Otherwise it's happy holidays because that's more accurate.

Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, Happy Holidays, and all that to you and yours.

      Okay, this is the song list I’ve been waiting for, and I just knew that Flourish would be the one to deliver these beautiful songs in which I take so much delight in! Thank you, my friend!

      I was so happy to see in the poll that most still say: Merry Christmas, as I do!

      I could not vote on first poll because all of them fit, except very last humbug answer.

      Jesus is The Reason for The Season, indeed!

      What a beautiful compilation. My favorite from your list is #15, but I like the version by Pentatonix. They are such a great acapella group. Everything they do sounds amazing. Thank you for this playlist. I'll bookmark it--it should be good inspiration as I write Christmas-themed recipes.
