During the Christmas season most people can agree on music they love, whether they are Christians or not. While the world continues to sing Christmas carols, many Christian musicians are still writing songs that tell the story of Christmas in a fresh new way. This is not a list of Christmas carols. Rather, this is a list of contemporary Christian worship songs that follow the theme of Christmas.
In the last 20 years, Christian songwriters and worship leaders have caught on to the fact that Christmas is a significant time for worship in the church. More than just Christmas carols, there are so many great worship songs that highlight the themes of Christmas in a style that flows with worship songs we sing all throughout the year. These songs talk about joy, hope and peace in ways that are relevant to our modern lives, just as the classic carols connect us to the rich theology of our history.
