ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christmas music has always held a special place for me. I grew up listening to Christmas music the entire month of every December. I'm excited to share my versions of eight of my favorite Christmas songs, plus an original Christmas song I wrote just for this album.

The Night Innocent Beheld Innocence
Words and music by Ted Kirkpatrick

I asked myself “Why a manger?”
What is it - that made God choose
The gentle beasts in a humble place
Among the first to see his face…

The lamb gazed down upon the king - and with his look said everything
In a manger quietly - the lamb among the first to see
“They’ll use my name to tell the world – the sacrifice, your plan unfurled
And when I’m lost, I will be found – for the shepherd searches all around”

No accident, no coincidence
The animals not there by chance
The innocent look down on innocence

The donkey stood nearby the king – and with his look said everything
In a manger quietly – the donkey among the first to see
“I carried you to this place – beneath the star of heaven’s grace
One day you’ll ride on one like me – for all Jerusalem to see.”

No accident, no coincidence
The animals not there by chance
Let all with breath give praise to the King of Kings
The cattle gazed down at the king – creator God of everything
“Our kind upon a thousand hills – belong to you the psalmist tells.”

The camel kneeled close to the king – from travels far he lay resting
In a manger quietly – the camel among the first to see
“We carry loads across the sand – and kings to see Immortal Man”
Let all with breath give praise to the King of Kings

No accident, no coincidence
The animals not there by chance
The innocent look down on innocence
No accident, no coincidence
The animals not there by chance
A blessed witness to the holy birth

I asked myself “Why a manger?”
What is it - that made God choose
The gentle beasts in a humble place
His love and His grace…
