Best Christmas Song You’ve Never Heard

My grandparents, Tommie and Margaret Spurlock, met at a Sacred Harp Singing. I found this amazing Sacred Harp Christmas song, “Christmas Anthem,” and I’m so excited to sing it for you today with my friends Stephanie White and Sara Ciotti!

225 Christmas Anthem
Written by James Denson, 1844

Oh, how charming
Are the radiant bands of music!
Flying in the air.

The church triumphant gives the tone
While they surround the holy throne,
In glory, with celestial arts,
Angelic armies tune their harps,
And raptured seraphs play their parts:
Strike their notes at our Redeemer’s birth.

New (Old) Song

Let’s go back to 1997 for this one…Olivia and I weren’t even engaged yet…but I missed her and I hd some darkness that needed light. “Day Over Night” was born…

Day Over Night
Written by Ben Ward

I’m here without sight
Heal me Lord
I’m here without direction
Cut me a path towards
A place of clarity
Somewhere I can see

Father, Comforter, Savior, Friend
Hold me close till this pain has an end
In you I find complete delight
You conquer my darkness like day over night

You’re here with my questions
And all of my heartaches
You’re here with my confusion
When I can’t get it straight
You know my uncertainty
You’re everything I need


You say, “Come to Me with or without
Come to me with your heart hanging out”
You say, “Come and drink when you’re thirsty and dry
Come to me even if you ask why”

I’m here Lord
It’s just me again
I’m here Lord
I’m in need of a friend
I’m here Lord
No one but You
Can make me tender
Overflowing and new


Help Me Believe

Brand new song about finding help to believe…lyrics below!

Help me Believe
Written by Ben Ward

My heart’s so stubborn
I keep running
Going nowhere
Standing still
Reasons keep crumbling
Falling and fumbling
My next step’s suddenly clear

Help me believe you love me
Help me believe you care
Help me believe you’re real
and not some part of my imagination
I’m standing waiting to see
Help me believe

Seems so easy
Everybody’s reaching
Don’t they doubt
Aren’t they afraid?
Seeing double
So much trouble
Remembering what to say

I remember
That November
You chased my fear away
So much blessing
No second guessing
I want you back, I want you to stay


I’m the first to say demonstrate, verify
Prove yourself, tell me why
I want to overcome
Start to trust
Give you a chance
Step into your love

Lavishing Love

Brand new song today!! So excited to share this one about the Prodigal Son…let me know what you think!

Finding My Way Back to You
Written by Ben Ward

You overwhelm me with mercy
You overtake me with grace
Lavishing love, more than enough
Goodness I see and taste
So why do I run away?

So unworthy
Still You love me
Yet You celebrate
As I’m finding my way
In Your time and Your place
Back to the look on Your face
Full of mercy and grace
I’m finding my way back to You

All the riches and glory in Jesus
You willingly gave away
Sacrificing Your Son so I could come
Bask in the light of Your face
Why do I run away?
