In this dynamic, heartfelt Christmas musical, we hear a message of comfort, encouragement, and peace for a people longing for redemption. Inspired by the lyrics and narration of John and Audra Parker, Mark Hayes once again showcases his mastery of diverse styles that gives voice to all of God’s people as they sing praise. In the resource’s eight choruses, familiar carols are magnificently blended with new music to draw your congregation into the themes and mood of "Child of Hope." Each chorus is followed by a compelling narrative, which may be complemented by a personal reflection, either in the reading of the included optional monologues or as offered by a choir member or worshipper. Your church won’t soon forget this meaningful Christmas experience as they receive the joy of God’s great gift, the "Child of Hope."
