One miraculous night in Bethlehem changed the course of human history forever. Foretold by Old Testament prophets, the Messiah entered the world and, even more importantly, the hearts of people from all walks of life with a message of hope and love. This holy night is distinctively captured in this musical recounting of Jesus' birth. Blending familiar carols with original Christmas anthems, this work is a timely reminder that the hope born on that first Christmas night is still needed today and ultimately found in the miraculous Child born in Bethlehem. Heart-warming music, inspiring narration, and congregational singing make this piece a moving worship experience for choirs and congregations alike. Performance time: approximately 30 minutes.
