An anthem written for the Sunday after Christmas with a message to carry the spirit of Christmastide throughout the year. Hope and joy are revealed in the birth of our Savior and this anthem calls the world to come and behold that precious miracle. A pleasant, flowing melody leads the piece onward, beckoning the listener to follow the warmth of a shining star to find true light. The writers have utilized the classic, In the Bleak Midwinter and updated it with a relevant new text, which points the church toward the coming year and the spiritual journeys lying ahead. Once again, Nancy Price and Don Besig provide the singing church with beautiful and useful material. A Time for Hope, A Time for Joy is a sure statement of faith to treasure the feeling of Christmas all year long.
