It was written on the approach to Christmas in 2021, when Ruth was mourning the loss of 3 friends.

The song reminds us that we have hope for the future because this isn't the end of the story, and God is with us in the mess of life. Ruth hopes that this Christmas song will bring comfort to people who don't feel like celebrating this Christmas. Ruth lives in Birmingham, United Kingdom, with her husband and two teenagers.

A beautiful song that explores what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how that can help us be more bold in sharing the gospel.

Fr Mark Baumgarten - A Newborn King (Christmas)

Fr Mark Baumgarten has released a Christian Christmas (CCM) track called 'A Newborn King'. The Christmas season is a time of joy, but it can also be a time of great anxiety. We're all trying to make our lives better, but it can be difficult to know how to do that when our world seems so full of pain.  In this new song by Fr Mark Baumgarten, we get a glimpse into the struggle between cynicism and hope.  Fr Mark is a priest and musician from Perth, Australia. The song has been produced by Fr Mark Baumgarten on the piano and lead vocal, Naya Chorale, St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Graeme Bell (bass), Andre Bourgault du Coudray (trombone), and Simon Groves (trumpet). My favorite part of the lyrics is where Fr Mark sings: 'There's a newborn King, who's turned everything upside down. But 'pretender kings' are still clinging to their crowns... and so am I. Yet still the star, it shines on a weary world. And still our hearts, they pine for a priceless pearl of ho
