Run to the Hope
From the writing team of Dove Award winners Mike Harland, Karen Peck, and Lee Black, this Christmas musical from Daywind Publishing provides a call and an invitation to your congregation. The stirring opening chorus of “O Holy Night,” reminds listeners that the story of Jesus’ birth is all about “the thrill of hope” to a dark and weary world. Powerful narration weaves together familiar carols with accessible songs, including the tender ballad “My Father in Heaven (Mary’s Song)” and the exciting title song that reminds us that like the shepherds we are urged to go quickly and find the newborn king. A modern hymn, “Jesus Messiah, Our Blessed Hope,” closes the musical by echoing Isaiah’s message that even though we have walked in darkness, Christ’s coming has brought light to the world, both 2000 years ago and today!
