Here’s our Christmas song. Like every good
Christmas song, it has these notes in it… pretty peppy, huh? Everybody’s heard of Rudolph,
Dominick the Donkey, even the Seraphim. But Willy the Christmas Weasel, I bet you’ve never heard of him. Willy the Christmas Weasel, he used to live by our house – meaner than any rat, sneakier than any mouse. He used to come popping out of nowhere. My childhood was fraught with fear, but Willy the Christmas Weasel saved Christmas for us one year. Santa was making his rounds, spreading his Christmas cheer, scarfing down Christmas cookies and
cake with the occasional Christmas beer. He almost caved in our roof. Him and his reindeers were as heavy as a truck, and when he tried to slide down our chimney, Santa he got stuck. Oh what would become of all the childrens on this woeful Christmas night? How ever would they get their presents with Santa wedged in tight? Little did we know Willy was hibernating
in the chimney. He built himself a little nest there. He even had a little TV. Suddenly came a scream. I thought it would knock down the walls. It seems that Willy the Christmas Weasel bit Santa right in the… chimney! Then Santa shot out the chimney. He landed with a thud in the snow. He was shouting out a whole bunch of stuff, none of which was
“ho ho ho”. Still it was a pretty good Christmas – lots of toys for little Jack. Y’know it almost seemed like Santa had a couple of extra holes in his sack. Well, they say to everything
there’s a season, so the world can turn more easily. I guess everything has a reason, even if it’s weaselly. Willy the Christmas Weasel, next year he turned up dead. Looked like he’d been thrown off the roof and then run over by a sled. But I always think of Willy whenever the yuletide falls, especially when I’m decorating the tree, hanging those Christmas… ornaments!
“Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way.” Do you like my decorations? Eh, no. Where’s your decorations? A wha? Where’s your christmas decorations? I, don’t have any. Oh no. Uh, it’s not really a big deal. Oh no, it’s terrible. No, I-It’s fine, really. You can borrow my decorations. Thanks but, no. No really, I want you to try them on. Just leave me alone okay? I know they would look amazing on you. I don’t want your decorations. Just one tiny decoration? No. Just a sparkly Christmas ball? No, no. Are you even listening to me? No, no, no! No, just stop alright? No! *sigh* No, no, no, no no.. You look amazing. Well, I guess I look.. Okay. You’re the most beautiful tree I ever saw. Wait? What? *scream* “Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.” “Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.” *screams* Do you like my decorations?

Hail the Prince of Heaven comes Angel choirs sound the call For this babe wrapped in a cloth is The incarnate Word of God All the kingdom and its power Resting now in this child Prince of Heaven Jesus Hope of the World Hillsong christmas at the peace project it’s name of the album and there’s a concept behind, this album you guys, had, some thoughts that We were talking about share a little bit about Just the the idea that concept as you guys, were developing this album We really liked the idea of we were really passionate about the idea not just liked it about About christmas music being, also worshipful because the, whole premise of christmas inspires worship the audacity of christmas and God’s plan, to bring the opportunity for us to make peace with him through jesus is crazy But the whole idea of the album came about when, we were talking about christmas and that whole The, whole premise being that christmas is god’s peace project Being when god sent. His son again to make a, way for us to make peace with him And the idea that now is the church, we inherit that responsibility We are the peace project to the earth yeah, well and mikey you were production on this album as Well we’re not listening to this This, music it feels like a worship expression you know and christmas music sometimes takes on different forms but, going into this Was the, what was your concept there what were you really the target you were to going after when you’re producing Well ben benton he, also worked on the album as, well he We sat down, and we started talking about? Like, what should it sound? Like, like should it have You know because christmas music? We we actually sat down listen to like eight hours worth of christmas music and then We were like what what should it sound like, and? The thing that, we we agreed on, is that it should just feel, like, worship like, because that’s that’s what We do that’s kind of our thing we’re not really good at jazz, and we’re not really good at like You know there was a lot of stuff that were referencing like can, we actually pull this off can We and we just thought like, we’re trying to make it as honest like it’s centered around the birth of christ and Yeah, so it was it was pretty exciting and so the concept of trying to have strings like so We hired a guy, that, would put the students together and he would say You know here’s a crazy, concept, what do you guys think until, we would work with that, and that was a, new? Thing for us. And that kind of gave another expression to it and then there’s like a Quite like choir, and every, song it’s kind of as a fun really fun album to me And brooke you wrote this with. Your husband, scotty and this lyric kind of walked through that a little bit We were talking before now i love what this, song says because it starts off obviously it’s talking about jesus and This, this irony of this baby that came to save all of mankind but My, favorite part of lyric, is that fourth verse, where it really becomes personal and Just thinking, about this time of year where people are showing up in church that Maybe haven’t ever been or been there a long time and hearing the church sing this this invitation at the end you know to come and know him this prince of peace i Walk, through, that lyric and and how you, guys Fleshed out those ideas in the song i think it happened pretty naturally i think You know in church life and in kingdom life There are all these principles we learn, and these things, we learn, about the character of god and about the great story of the gospel But the amazing thing, is that every single one of those principles and those things We learned they have an action point and so We love the idea of there being people you know And christmas services singing all these traditional songs that have been beloved for generations but then They’re, also being a point in the service, where people could go Oh, okay all of these things that i’m singing about this is the action point for me now This, is what it actually, means it’s invitational all of the contexts that i’ve been learning About in the birth of christ applies to me here today and this is where i can this is where i can? Step into the story, myself, yeah it’s amazing michael, walker steve cord wise what you’re playing you’re in The key of fe you, were saying the recording is actually f sharp so brooke, would have it in the lowest key possible i would have it in c if i Yeah, so that you had the burst rather than, making it the the four chord i’ve just kind of like, made it the south that it goes to the the g to me the f but yeah i guess Revolving around the sauce and the natural i guess, is kind of the the main concept for it and then yeah of course goes to the before Well i kind of really, like this like My, favorite chord i think so pretty much have it in every song and i pretty much capo The guitar, to make this chord work just sound see nice and happy Yeah, which is just it’s a f chord without their without the middle finger c to, the g Yeah, yes simple chords is really simple it’s actually, like, melodically it’s You, forget how, simple the chords are cuz Especially in the chorus the melody kind of like, goes up quite, like nicely so i i get super cuz, i’m like, huh What’s the next chord coming up it’s actually just the same chord to be in playing the whole time, yeah it’s pretty cool Well beautiful song wonderful lyric. Brooke thanks for coming, by and sharing the song with this
