Music is powerful. But music mixed with talented videography that celebrates the life of Jesus Christ and all that He stood for? THAT is soul touching, happy tear-inducing, and will bring the spirit of Christmas into your home faster than just about anything else. I’ve collected my absolute favorite Christmas music videos to share with you, as you try to bring the true meaning of Christmas into your family’s hearts.
1. The Piano Guys (and a TON of other cool people!) in Angels From The Realms of Glory
Talk about cool! This includes the world record for the largest live nativity ever. The music will give you chills, and Steven Sharp Nelson’s words at the end will make you cry for sure if you aren’t already after watching this video. (Bonus: See how many cool Youtubers you can recognize!)
2. GENTRI’s O Holy Night
This video does a great job of illustrating Isaiah’s words and what they would look like today: “…when we see him there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men…and we esteemed him not.”
3. Lindsey Sterling’s “Hallelujiah”
To get this, you need to watch her explanation at the end. If you are going through a difficult time right now, this video is for you.
4. David Archuleta and Nathan Pacheco
There aren’t words for how beautiful this is.
5. The Piano Guys, “O Come, Emmanuel
Scenes from the life of Christ before his supreme act of love, set to beautiful music. This would be a great one to watch on Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas, my friends. Thanks for being here. I love you. “God bless us, every one!”
