New Christmas Worship: Glory In The Highest by Travis Cottrell with Choir
Travis Cottrell perfectly captures the essence of Christmas with his new worship piece “Glory In The Highest”. Grabbing onto the incredible power behind the story of Christ’s birth, “Glory In The Highest” weaves the beauty of the simplicity of a newborn child with the knowledge and reverence that this babe is the Son of God.
New Christmas Worship: Glory In The Highest by Travis Cottrell
“Who could have imagined this?
Infant and the Infinite
Son of God, so wonderful
Heaven’s perfect miracle”
“This song feels like ‘awe’ to me…from the very beginning of writing the song… it was so awe inspiring, it felt like Christmas to me, like everything that I love about Christmas”
From the opening repetitive notes, this song instantly gave us the Christmas chills. Not unlike classics such as “Silent Night” or “ For Unto Us A Child Is Born” we were instantly moved by this Christmas worship anthem and the power in the lyrics. There is something exceptional in singing a Christmas song that is also a worshipful moment between us and the Father. Clearly divinely inspired, Travis shares that “From the very beginning I felt like God was creating this very reverent awe-inspiring moment”
Borrowing some lyrics from “Hark the Herald Angels”, this worship anthem successfully puts the worshipper in the moment of Christ’s birth. To realize that He came to save and that the King of Kings had been born to the world is something truly moving to let sink in.
“Glory in the highest
Glory in the highest
Prince of Peace, King of Kings
Jesus, Lord of everything
Glory in the highest”
What a privilege to worship the Prince of Peace and to realize that in this time of year, we have so much more to be grateful for than material goods. We serve a risen Savior and this time of year is the reminder that God has always had a plan for our lives!
Luke 2:10-12 But the angel said to them, ““Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
