Michael Perry. Isaiah 9:6, Luke 2:13, Psalms 90:17, Psalms 95:1.
With a cheerful text by Michael Perry and music by Hal Hopson, this "new" Christmas carol is being widely used as a hymn. Hal Hopson's appealing choral setting takes on a global flavor with the addition of handbells and tambourine. The strong melody underscores the "Glorias" and "Alleluias" to proclaim the Christmas Story.
