Fa la la la la la la la la

Name That Tune!

Deck The Halls!  I know - it took me a minute too.

Music and Christmas go hand in hand.  Christmas carols like Silent Night or Hark The Herald Angels Sing to old classics like Jingle Bells, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas.

Here is the most popular Christmas song of all time according to Billboard Magazine.

1. "All I Want for Christmas Is You," Mariah Carey
2. "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," Brenda Lee
3. "The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas to You)," Nat King Cole
4. "Jingle Bell Rock," Bobby Helms
5. "Feliz Navidad," Jose Feliciano
6. "A Holly Jolly Christmas," Burl Ives
7. "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," Andy Williams
8. "Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)," Trans-Siberian Orchestra
9. "White Christmas," Bing Crosby
10. "Last Christmas," Wham!

Ephesians 5:19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

You might have noticed that "Joy to the World" didn't make a list.  It isn't the goal of these songs to be popular, it is their goal to allow us to express our praise and worship to Christ. 

As you worship in church, whether you sing a timeless Christmas hymn or a new Christmas melody written by a worship artist, allow the words to touch your heart, allow the music from your heart to sing unto the Lord and let others know that you believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I'm going to worship You today with all my heart.  AMEN
