It may still be 102 days until Christmas, but it’s never too early for a Christmas song, especially when it’s as good as This Is War. This epic sounding song by Dustin Kensrue looks at the nativity scene and the birth of Jesus through a different view, the view that this is the start of a huge war between Jesus and Death rather than joyful celebrations of a new born king. A very unique Christmas song, and some very good song writing, for more Christmas songs from Dustin Kensrue check out the album this song is from – This Good Night Is Still Everywhere.

Lyrics:
This is war like you ain’t seen.
This winter’s long, it’s cold and mean.
With hangdog hearts we stood condemned,
But the tide turns now at Bethlehem.

This is war and born tonight,
The Word as flesh, the Lord of Light,
The Son of God, the low-born king;
Who demons fear, of whom angels sing.

This is war on sin and death;
The dark will take it’s final breath.
It shakes the earth, confounds all plans;
The mystery of God as man.

Genre: Modern Rock, Alternative Rock

The Modern Post come from West Coast America where they are part of the worship team for Mars Hill Church Orange County. Signed to their church’s record label, Mars Hill Music they bring a refreshing, modern and distinctly different sound to worship music. It’s also worth noting that the band is fronted by Dustin Kensrue, who has two solo albums and is also the frontman to the band Thrice.

Lyrics:
I was an orphan, lost at the fall; 
Running away when I’d hear you call, 
But Father, you worked your will. 
I had no righteousness of my own 
I had no right to draw near your throne, 
But Father, you loved me still. 

And in love, before you laid the world’s foundation, 
You predestined to adopt me as your own. 
You have raised me up so high above my station; 
I’m a child of God by grace, and grace alone 

You left your home to seek out the lost; 
You knew the great and terrible cost 
But Jesus, your face was set. 
I worked my fingers down to the bone; 
But nothing I did could ever atone, 
But Jesus, you paid my debt. 

By your blood I have redemption and salvation. 
Lord you died that I might reap what you have sown, 
And you rose that I might be a new creation. 
I am born again by grace, and grace alone. 

I was darkness all of my life, 
I never knew the day from the night, 
But Spirit, you made me see. 
I swore I knew the way on my own; 
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone 
But Spirit, you moved in me. 

And At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened; 
On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone. 
Called into a kingdom that cannot shaken; 
Heaven’s citizen by grace, and grace alone. 

So I’ll stand in faith by grace, and grace alone 
I will run the race by grace, and grace alone 
I will slay my sin by grace, and grace alone 
I will reach the end by grace, and grace alone
