Grace Church Worship
Written by Josh Wicker and Christina Rossetti
Red Tie Music. Copyright December 2011.
A few Decembers ago my former Pastor, David Grout, introduced me to an old hymn called Love Came Down at Christmas, by Christna Rossetti. It was originally written as a poem in 1885 and eventually it was set to music and published in several hymnals.
It was a Tuesday morning when he asked me if I had ever heard the song. I sat down that afternoon and was moved as I experienced the crafting of this song from the inspiration of that old hymn.
An hour or so later my wife came by the church to pick up our daughter from preschool. I was excited to show her what I had come up with. As I played it for her I remember hardly being able to get through the song. It just felt so special. It felt like a gift. Immediately she loved it so I recorded it with my cell phone before I could forget the melody.
The next evening at our midweek band practice I showed it to our worship team. We played it for the first time that Sunday. It seemed to find its’ way into everyone’s hearts that day, and our pastor asked us to play it again on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
That was December 2011. This year we decided to include Love Came Down (One Christmas Night) as a Christmas Single for Grace Church. Download your free copy below!
