Season of Hope by Don Moen

Updated on October 25, 2018

Christmas: A Season of Hope with Don Moen

Don and I go back at least a few decades ... well, his music and I do that is. For as long as I can remember I have been singing Christian music in church and at home recorded and written by this legendary artist.

Every year I look forward to the new music that ushers in the Christmas spirit. Last year I received an e-mail from Don Moen and Friends that offered a free download of his newest recording A Spirit of Hope. This would be Don's first attempt to produce his own record, and with much prayer and diligence it was first released in October 2012.

As he put it for this recording project: "This time, I followed my heart and not my head."

Continuing in his spirit of giving, Mr. Moen gives free downloads to new releases or specials throughout the year as a gift of thanksgiving to God and to his faithful partners in ministry through prayer or support. As of today December 11th, he just released another free download for his facebook fans.

Don Moen Christmas CD

Season of Hope is the title song from this CD

Season of Hope with Lyrics

Why I like this CD

If there is anyone who knows how to celebrate the joy of the Lord through the message of hope, it is Don Moen. I was so delighted when this CD, Christmas: A Season of Hope was released. This music surely brings the Light of God into each heart that listens to them.

When listening or watching a concert of Don's, you are always mindful that he is singing to the Lord and not trying to make a spectacle of himself or bring attention to his work. It's all about the love of the Savior.

As he sings each song and invites all to share in the experience, Mr. Moen brings us into the presence of the Lord as we worship. It works for me every time!

In this particular album there are many favorites that we love such as Mary Did You Know (written by Mark Lowry) and Joy to the World, but they aren't performed as we normally would sing them. Each of the ten songs are performed uniquely and intertwined in a series of medleys that draw the peace of God near.

Worship leaders will appreciate the fact that this CD is also available in split track as a digital download from his website, with additional training resources that include charts for music, parts and vocals. It is available on MP3 as well. I love this idea, because it makes sharing the songs with the church body easier, especially if you are using any of them for special music.

The album closes with Don singing a Christmas prayer and wishing everyone a very "Merry Little Christmas." If you have never heard of this gifted musician, songwriter and singer I have included his theme song to this CD on video below. Listen to it and let me know what you think.

As Don would relay to you, with a warm heart I wish God's Spirit of Hope be full in your house this Christmas Season.

Christmas Music Selections

Don Moen produced some of the best Christmas CD albums for Integrity Music, which included this Songs 4 Worship Christmas CD.

Thousands of congregations have sung these songs in services for the holiday season.

I have listened to this CD so many times I can't count them. There are twenty two songs for Christmas worship performed by various artists such as: Don Moen, Darlene Zchech, Charlie and Lenny LeBlanc, Women Of Faith Worship Team, Morris Chapman and more, along with the Integrity Worship Singers.

 

Songs 4 Worship Christmas CD

If you are looking for an all around great CD for home or church you will like the Songs 4 Worship Christmas CD. It is packed with songs from your favorite Christian recording artists with songs of the season that everyone will enjoy singing.

Darlene Zschech from Hillsong is just one of the artists on this 2 disk CD. It is one of my favorites.

We have used many of these songs year after year at home and in our church services, and it continues to usher in the Holy Spirit filling the people with joy.

Best Christmas Praise & Worship Songs

Songbooks with modern Christian or "contemporary" music is not always easy to find. Thankfully Don Moen realized this as a worship leader. Now worship leaders like myself can have access to the music on CD and through the songbooks.

This is one that I've added to my favorite CD/songbook must have's, which include music lists and lyrics by Don Moen. There are also music books available for the praise and worship team in your church.

In the songbooks you will learn to play Don Moen's songs and enjoy spending time in the presence of the Lord. However, if you want to go the traditional route, you will also be pleased with the arrangements that are supplied in the songbooks and CD combos.

Praise and Worship Christmas

Music by Don Moen includes traditional Christmas favorites like: O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Angels We Have Heard on High, O Come Emmanuel, Away in a Manger, What Child is This, Joy to the Word and O Holy Night.

 

Emmanuel Has Come

One thing that I look for in music is to be able to use it to accompany any plays that the church or children will be performing. Having the correct must not only makes the overall production flow better, it boosts the moral of those involved.

The song "A King is Born" is one that I loved including in one of the plays that I wrote for children's church. Each child used a dance ribbon as they made their way into the sanctuary with the song playing as they performed. Every parent, friend or relative was beaming as they watched the children and listened to this glorious song about our Savior Jesus being born!

Every time we use these materials it brings the entire production to life and the message we want to convey is illuminated through the power bestowed through Christian music.

Available in MP3 download this CD has ten songs and it is performed as in a play production setting. Included is the title song Emmanuel Has Come, A King is Born (love that song), Celebrate: His Glory, Majesty, Birth and Reign.

      SavioC he's one if not my favorite worship leader/Christian recording artist. I Will Sing CD has a wonderful message and we sing it often. It's one I taught our church and did a concert on for television. You have me on the number of albums of his. Can't say I have them all (not the beginning ones) but a lot of them. He is such an inspiration and blessing. Thank you for sharing your love for Christian music.
