“We chose ‘Christmas Morning’ as the title track because it encapsulates, to me, what Christmas is,” Paul McClure says. “It tells the story of the Gospel, of Jesus coming to earth. It tells the significance of what that means; the Father loved the world so much that He sent Jesus. Every child’s excited for Christmas morning, and that’s what we get in relation to the Gospel as believers. Every day is Christmas morning living in the reality of Jesus and what He’s done for us. I think this song captures what we wanted to talk about—the Rescuer coming to save us at Christmas.”
Serving as worship leaders and songwriters with Bethel Music and at Bethel Church in Redding, California, Paul and Hannah McClure have been featured on every major release for the label since 2010 with songs like “Jesus, We Love You,” “One Thing,” “Faithful to the End” and “How Great a King.” The McClures’ full-length Bethel Music debut, The Way Home, released last year to critical acclaim.
