As promised in the Advent Hymns and Carols post, I’ve also compiled a list of Christmas (and Epiphany) Hymns and Carols. It was much more difficult to decide upon these songs — there are so many favorites. So, as with the Advent post, please consider this a first draft, to be improved upon next year. And, as with the Advent post, please tell me if you find mistakes!
My rationale was to pair one well known hymn or carol with another that is lesser known throughout Christmastide. My hope is that this list helps us celebrate all twelve days of Christmas (I’m always so thankful at our church, that we get to keep singing our Christmas music together on the First Sunday of Christmas). And, I decided to also throw in some hymns for Epiphany as well.
May the Lord bless our Christmastide festivities with His harmony and joy.
January 6 (Epiphany): We Three Kings;
January 7: Brightest and Best (Hail the Blest Morn)
January 8: Saw You Never in the Twilight
January 9: Watchman, Tell Us of the Night
January 10: What Star is This
January 11: As With Gladness Men of Old
