What are your favorite Christmas songs?

Over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas, I’ll be posting my favorite Christmas songs and hymns.  I’d love to hear what are your favorites — especially songs that most of us have never heard.  I’ll also try to provide a link to listen to the particular version of the song I post.

To kick it off, here’s my favorite Christmas song (non hymn):

I Celebrate the Day
By Relient K

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You’ve touched my life
Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same place as New Year’s eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I’ll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

    How can you beat a line like this:

    And the first time that You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior?

    You can’t!

    Great pick, bro! I love that song.

    I would have to say that my favorite “classic” Christmas songs would have to be “O Holy Night” (preferably by Kelly Clarkson) and “Do You Hear What I Hear?” (preferably by Johnny Mathis).
