This is my favorite spiritual Christmas CD. The lyrics are so moving and meaningful and the arrangements are interesting and varied. I have purchased many of this CD by Michael Card and given them away as gifts. Absolutely wonderful music!
I really enjoyed the CD. I had heard one of the songs before the purchase and thought I'd take a chance on buying the CD. (I even bought one for a friend.) I love the lyrics. It was really nice to listen to while wrapping presents and writing out Christmas cards. It just kept me focused on the true "Reason for the Season". It was well worth it! The songs are beautiful and full of meaning.
Michael Card -in his written or musical offerings- tends to provide a deeper perspective on the Lord's gospel message. Songs on "The Promise" trace the joys of Christmas back to the humble origins of Christ's birth and forward to the ultimate gift of his resurrection. This is not the standard holiday album....enjoy.
