Christmas CD Forthcoming from Sovereign Grace

From the Sovereign Grace e-newsletter:

Why do we celebrate Christmas?

In one sense, the answer is easy: We celebrate the coming of Jesus. But in another sense the answer is beyond our comprehension: The eternal God became a man. The Holy One came to live with sinners. The Savior came to bear our sins and bring us to God.

This astounding truth is the reason for our newest music CD: Savior: Celebrating the Mystery of God Become Man. This CD contains twelve new songs for worship, each one truth-saturated and singable, most of them suitable for use in corporate praise. The songs ponder not only Christ's coming, but also the reason he came:
God has sent His greatest treasure
Shown His love in greatest measure
Sending Christ to bleed and suffer
Purchasing our joy forever
Let the earth rejoice!
Savior will be released, Lord willing, in early November. But you can pre-order it now at our online store ($14.00). You can also listen to song samples, download lyrics, and see a video interview with songwriters Mark and Stephen Altrogge at the CD webpage:

And as we celebrate, we want you to have more than a brief preview. We want to give you the song "Hope Has Come" from Savior as a free MP3 download. Written and sung by Stephen Altrogge (Mark Altrogge's son), "Hope Has Come" rejoices in the One who came to break sin's power and set us free. To download the song, visit our online store (, place the song in your shopping cart, and proceed to checkout. No download code is necessary. (If the above link does not lead you to the webpage for "Hope Has Come," use the online store's search feature to search for this item number: M4185-02-51.) This free download will be available until the CD is released next month.
