From the very beginning, this anthem draws you in with its stirring original text from Rose Aspinall. Combined with a lovely melody from Jay Rouse, this piece invites us all to worship the Child of the Promise. Jay creatively pairs the chorus melody with an excerpt of “O Holy Night” in the latter part of the piece to add familiarity and further draw in the listener.
