CCM Presents the Top 10 Christmas Originals

Few seasons connect through music like Christmas, with familiar holiday tunes drawing out memories of cheer-filled Christmas mornings, family gatherings, and thoughts of the perfect gift. Yet, all too often those songs turn stale as we hear them repeated over and over again, covered by different artists. Here are ten of our favorite CCM Christmas originals, written and performed by the artist, in no particular order.

Sara Groves — Her Story in Hymns

Sara Groves is arguably one of the greatest poets storyboarding Christian music over the past two decades. Her propensity for penning the most human verses, married with the most elegant melodies, is so poignant her musicianship can persuade even the hardest of hearts to simply confess and believe. And for those of us who teeter between faith and doubt, Sara’s songs have expressed our heart without judgment, shouldering up with us in our questions as if to say, or sing, “It’s okay. I’ve been there, too. And I suspect God is right here with us.”
