Love Awoke on Christmas Morn

November 30, 2017  |  Cody Kimmel

It was probably around 2 in the morning in the middle of December. My third son, Wesley, was just under two months old and I was rocking him back to sleep in his room. Ever since having children, I’ve always been overwhelmed by the idea that God became a baby. The God of the universe, who made all things, stooped down to become someone so helpless.

While I rocked my son that night, I began to write this song in my head. It wasn’t just a baby born in Bethlehem that day, but the love that all creation longed for. It was the love that rescued both the poor and the rich, the oppressed and the oppressor, and brought true freedom to mankind.

Please watch the music video, made by Joshua Coe, and share it if you like it. You can also get the song anywhere music is sold or streamed.
