“Rejoice”, by Todd Twining

Far and away my favorite new Christmas song this year is on the Savior CD I was given this past week.

Here are the lyrics to the song “Rejoice” by Todd Twining:

Ve Verse 1

All the earth rejoice

Your Creator reigns

As the only awesome God

The Alpha and the Omega

Who was, is, and is to come

Let the oceans roar and the mountains sing

He provides for all He has made

So be comforted as He rules with grace

Rejoice, all the earth, rejoice

Verse 2

All the world rejoice

For the baby comes

As a humble prince in the night

The Word made flesh, Emmanuel

The Everlasting Light

Let the warmth of heaven reach the coldest heart

With the gospel of His grace

For His heel will bruise the serpent’s head

Rejoice, all the world, rejoice

Verse 3

All the church rejoice

For your King returns

On a white horse wearing a crown

He will break the sky with the angel’s shout

Descending from the clouds

Then the dead will rise from the land and sea

All His people will ascend

We will reign with Him for eternity

Rejoice, all the church, rejoice

    I purhcased this CD the week that it was released. Sovereign Grace has long produced outstanding music for corporate worship, and this CD is certainly no exception. And with so many muddled and sentimental Christmas songs, it’s very refreshing to hear a collection of songs that seriously ponder and consider the glory of the Incarnation.

    My favorite songs on the CD are “Emmanuel, Emmanuel,” and “Salvation is Born.” I also really like the concept behind “Sleep, Jesus, Sleep.”

    Good stuff.
