Point of Grace Top Christmas Songs

By

Since 1991, the ladies of Point of Grace have shared their passion for the Lord with us through their music. Twelve albums, 27 #1 radio singles and nine Dove Awards show that they've been doing a fantastic job!

The Point of Grace gals have also released four excellent Christmas albums, bringing holiday joy into our homes in 1999, 2005, 2008 and 2010. These ladies love Christmas and their passionate delivery of well-known carols, as well as some new songs, shows us just how much.

1. "Not That Far From Bethlehem"

Point Of Grace - A Christmas Story
Sony
We're not that far from Bethlehem
Here all our hope and joy begins
For in our arms we'll cherish him
We're not that far, not that far from Bethlehem


Everything you love about Point of Grace can be found in this beautiful tune ... perfect delivery and harmony that will bring tears to your eyes ... this song gives you a peaceful feeling that you will carry for the rest of the day.

2. "Jingle Bells"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh


Big band type fun is what the ladies give us with their version of the Christmas classic.

3. "O Holy Night"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease


Those wonderful voices and a harp ... it just doesn't get any better than this folks.

4. "All Is Well"

Point Of Grace - Winter Wonderland
All is well all is well Let there be peace on earth
Christ is come go and tell
That He is in the manger
Sing A-le
Sing Alleluia


Michael W. Smith joins the ladies on piano and his talent on the keys combined with Heather Payne's breathless delivery make for pure Christmas magic.

5. "Angels We Have Heard On High"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ, the lord, the new-born king.


Summing up Point of Grace's version of "Angels We Have Heard On High" in one word ... simply glorious! (OK - maybe that was two words, but you get the point.) Sounding as though they were joined by a group of angels, Point of Grace delivers majesty and the magic of the season, all rolled up into one neat package.

6. "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!


More big band sound is what you get on this incredibly fun version of the Christmas classic.

7. "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow/Sleigh Ride"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!


Two wonderful carols done in a truly stunning way. The Point of Grace crew truly outdid themselves on their combined version of these two classic carols.

8. "Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)"

Point Of Grace - Winter Wonderland
Breath of Heaven, hold me together, be forever near me,
Breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven, lighten my darkness, pour over me Your holiness
For You are holy
Breath of Heaven


This is a beautiful tribute to Mary with harmonies so tight they could crack the walnuts you'll inevitably be using in your holiday baking.

9. "Tennessee Christmas"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
Another tender Tennessee Christmas, the only Christmas for me
Where the love circles around us like the gifts around our tree
Well they say in L.A. it's a warm holiday, it's the only place to be
A tender Tennessee Christmas, is the only Christmas for me


Written by Amy Grant and Gary Chapman, the ladies of Point of Grace give this holiday ballad a nice, soft touch.

10. "Little Town"

Point of Grace - Tennessee Christmas - a Holiday Collection
Word
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tiding tidings tell
Oh come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel


Not "O Little Town of Bethlehem" - in fact, not even close. But it is beautiful nonetheless. Harmony that soars is the driving factor behind this Christmas song and the ladies deliver it in a big way.
