Jill – I have used this several times over the years at different churches. It is always well received & truly touches the hearts of those who hear it & sing it! Great song to keep in the Christmas repertoire.

Managing Director, Praises Unlimited!

Mike Kucenski – While this song is certainly a beautiful solo piece for a young voice, it also works well for a choral group. Our Christian Praise Team added this song to our Christmas Program in 2015, which is presented to Retirement Communities and Assisted Living Facilities. All who heard this song fell in love with it, just as we did! It has a simple but heartfelt message and a beautiful tune that stirs an emotional response from both the performers and the listeners. This song is a perfect addition to any Christmas Program! The age range of our audience is 3 to 103 and everyone enjoys this song! My grandchildren (ages 3,5,7) were singing it on their own after only listening to it twice :)
