One of the reasons I moved away from traditional hymnody towards theologically rich modern worship was the excellent songwriting of Sovereign Grace Music. A few years ago I was blessed to lead Mark Altrogge‘s excellent modern Christmas song, “Christ the Lord is Born Today”, as originally recorded by Sovereign Grace Music.
It’s been one of my Christmas favorites since it was released a few years back, so I was excited to finally get to introduce it. I could spend all day fixing things but instead I’ll just let you hear it “in the raw”. Sadly, my friend Fred McKinnon‘s dulcimer part was only recorded in the house, so it is barely audible on the recording. Still, I hope it blesses you. Thanks for writing wonderful, Christ-centered songs, Mark!
Though I have no video for today, I do have a quality board mix of myself leading a Sunday service with this song. In all honesty, it needs no tutorial – it’s easy to reproduce with a band of any experience level!
If you’d like to give it a try, I found a chart HERE.
