  1. “Will it become a new Christmas classic?”
    I can’t remember where I got this information. An article I read? A radio program I listened to? Don’t know. It was years ago. It was a discussion about advising singers that new Christmas music had little chance, that at Christmas most people wanted to hear the classics, Bing Crosby, etc.

    Still, there are songs that have become hits that I consider more modern than that. Maybe Danny’s song has a chance to become one of the modern hits.

    I think it is good that he also included covers of loved Christmas favorites.

  2. I was really hoping they would have the preview of the other songs when the album went up at iTunes….. but you can only preview “Lift Up Your Eyes”. I suppose that is how presales work?

    I think this song is definitely a good fit for Danny. I like the tempo and the joyfulness of the song.

    I would like to include the lyrics on this post…. maybe I will have to ask Lori C if she has transcribed them? 🙂

  3. ask and ye shall receive, Jan… here’s the lyrics. Thanks for the help on that ONE word. I thought it was two. Lol

    Light of lights eternal hope has come
    By and by to lead us back to love
    Come behold the manger for a bed
    Where the king of Kings has laid his head
    Light of light eternal hope has come

    Hear the angels song break the silent night
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    See the saving one for that none may die
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the praises rise
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the earth reply
    Lift up your eyes

    Come and lay your offering at his feet
    Where the sons of earth and heavens meet
    Let the joy awake in every heart
    Born into the night, the morning star
    Come and lay your offering at his feet

    Hear the angels song break the silent night
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    See the saving one for that none may die
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the praises rise
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the earth reply
    Lift up your eyes

    He shall become wonderful
    Counselor, Almighty God
    He shall become Prince of peace
    The Lord of hosts
    The hope for us

    Can you hear the angels song
    Break the silent night
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Be the saving one
    For that none may die
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the praises rise
    Lift up your eyes
    Lift up your eyes
    Glory to God
    Let the earth reply
    Lift up your eyes

  6. 💡 The question mark smiley and the ! smiley sort of look like the top of a head (two eyes showing). I wonder if the idea smiley looks like the top of a head with a light bulb above it.

    I ask, and I will see.

  7. Hi Sherry, in our new music area you’ll find the album linked to a place that can help with that.

    I think Hope In Front Of Me was also available through several mainstream store chains and Christian retailers. So the Christmas album may as well when the physical CD becomes available? ‘though I’m not sure how quickly regular stores put out Christmas-specific merchandise.

  8. I like the new song. It didn’t feel “Christmassy” at first. I don’t know what I expected.
    I have only listened to it 3-4 times and it had to grow on me a bit. I think it will go over well on Christian radio and as a praise and worship song too. I am definitely looking forward to the album!
