Advent Reflections: You Shall Have a Song

God promises, "You shall have a song" (Isaiah 30:29), even when things look the most bleak and hopeless. This book explores four songs from the Bible: God's New Song (Psalm 96), Song of Light (Isaiah 42:1-9), Mary's Song (Luke 1:46-55) and Servant Song (Philippians 2:5-11). Hum along and learn the words of the songs as you move through the devotional reflections, Bible studies, and activities. Let the lyrics and notes of these songs take hold of you. Sing with gusto and share the songs with others. Sing to the Lord!

Use the daily reflections on your own or with a friend or family member. Explore the weekly Bible studies in an existing group or form a group with others, who are reading this book. Check out the activities and choose some hands-on ways to celebrate this Advent season.
