In the beginning was the word. The Word - Holy, Sacred. Just. Eternal. God in Christ. Christ in God. In the beginning. And suddenly the word was flesh. Incarnate. Human. Breakable. Common. Morning light into darkness. And that life-light blazed out of the darkness and the darkness could not put it out. Redeemer, Savior! Messiah, Lord! His name, Jesus. This is the story of the birth of the Prince of Peace. This wonderful new work by Randy Vader, Jay Rouse, and Rose Aspinall brings to life those amazing moments when our Savior took on flesh to be born in a manger. He is called the Prince of Peace and his coming brought the fulfillment of scripture to pass. The songs included in this work are: The Coming of the King Processional; A Merry Carol of the Bells; And on Earth, Peace; The Newborn Ancient of Days; I Am Yours (Magnificat); Do You Hear What I Hear?; Rejoice with Exceeding Great Joy!; Meant for Holy Scars; O Little Town of Bethlehem; Peace, Peace; Let There Be Peace on Earth; The Coming of the King Reprise.
