Stop and think about it. How many songs have you heard of that have been written to commemorate a baby's birth? Not too many, in this modern day and age. However, there are hundreds, perhaps, thousands, of songs that have been written about the birth of Jesus. Today, on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, David and Barbara Leeman, authors of the book, Hosanna in Excelsis, share a small collection of over 40 songs that provide rich and beautiful words for our worship of the God who sent His Son to earth. These hymns are like a picture album of the story of our blessed Lord Jesus.
Dr. Mark Jobe, President of Moody Bible Institute, joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Christmas Day to share a Christmas Devotional. "As we enter this season of Advent and celebrate the Lord’s birth, I would encourage you to allow for your plans to be interrupted by God. Allow Him to take center stage, so you can fully appreciate the extraordinary gift of His Son, Jesus. Like Mary, we can rejoice at His interruption, recognizing that “the Mighty One has done great things for me” (v. 49). When God draws near, it can be life-changing."
Chris Fabry, host of Moody Radio's Chris Fabry Live, joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte to share about his book that he wrote with Gary Chapman, A Marriage Carol. If your heart needs rekindling, if you long for unconditional love, this story will bring warmth and hope. We always need to remember that just one choice sometimes changes a life!

David is a retired director of music and worship, and Barbara teaches elementary age music at a private Christian School in Dallas, TX.
