Knox Summerour plays & sings Christmas favorites.

"Candles in the window. Glory to the newborn King. The babe the son of Mary. Along the journey of life it is all too easy to lose the magic and mystery of Christmas many of us were fortunate enough to feel and experience in childhood. It is my hope that "The Christmas Trumpet" will help you rekindle that hope and joy so willingly received and expressed as children, for Christmas to trumpet afresh in your heart, to know Christmas once more." - Knox

Track Name: What Child Is This?
What Child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and donkey are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come peasant, king to own Him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Track Name: Where Are You, Christmas? (feat. Scarlette Mae Summerour)
Where Are You, Christmas?
Why can't I find you?
Why have you gone away?
The world is changing, I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too?

Where Are You, Christmas?
Do you remember
The boy you used to know?
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go?

Where Are You, Christmas?
Do you remember
The girl (boy) you used to know?
You and I were so carefree
Now nothing's easy
Did Christmas change
Or just me?
Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
God rest ye merry, gentlemen
, let nothing you dismay

Remember, Christ, our Saviour was born on Christmas day

To save us all from Satan's power
 when we were gone astray

O tidings of comfort and joy,
 comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father a blessed Angel came;

And unto certain shepherds
 brought tidings of the same:

How that in Bethlehem was born
 the Son of God by Name

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises,
 all you within this place,

And with true love and brotherhood
 each other now embrace;

This holy tide of Christmas all other doth deface.

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy.
Track Name: Somewhere In My Memory
Somewhere in my memory,
Christ the joy of our Christmas.

Candles in the window
Shadows painting the ceiling
Gazing at the fire glow
Feeling that gingerbread feeling

Precious moments
Special people
Happy faces
I can see

Somewhere in my memory,
Christmas joys all around me
Living in my memory
All of the music
All of the magic
All of the family home here with me
