The Unbelievable – Acoustic Preview

PHR Album art FINAL_FotorThis coming Monday, Sept. 29, our second Christmas album, Prepare Him Room, is coming out. And we’re pretty excited. I’ve been breaking all my rules for “no Christmas music before Thanksgiving” and loving it.

In preparation for the album, we’ve put together four acoustic videos to preview some of the songs. They aren’t the versions that went on the album, but they give you an idea of what to expect.

The Unbelievable is the fourth video we recorded, written by my good friends Steve and Vikki Cook. We’re so familiar with nativities, carols, and the Christmas story, that we often lose the sense of awe, wonder, and amazement that the incarnation should produce in us. So we need to labor to be affected by what is truly inconceivable – God became a baby to redeem us from his judgment and to reconcile us to himself. It’s amazing grace.

In this video Devon, my son, is on acoustic and lead vocal, Neil DeGraide plays electric and sings, and Jonatan Barahona adds keys and vocals. For the album, Meghan Baird added her voice to make this song a duet. Enjoy.

VERSE 1
Come and see the inconceivable
And believe the unbelievable
God has come to dwell with us
Begotten Son born into Adam’s earth
Promised One fulfilling ancient words
God has come to dwell with us

BRIDGE
Who could ever know the depths
Of the myst’ry of Your grace?
Though our minds can’t take it in
Lord, our hearts are filled with praise

VERSE 2
He will heal the unhealable
He will save the unsavable
God has come to dwell with us
Heaven’s joy will drink our bitter cup
Emptied out as He is lifted up
God has come to dwell with us

VERSE 3
Lord, we’re lost in overwhelming awe
At the thought of such amazing love
God has come, God has come
God has come to dwell with us

We’ll have charts, lead sheets, and piano scores available for free when the album releases. If you’d like to help us get the word out, you can share about it on Twitter, Facebook, or other social media, or better yet, pre-order the album on iTunes. Thanks!
