Inspiring New Christmas Music Video Set in a Prison Depicts Redemption Through Jesus Christ

The new video for “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” is nothing short of breathtaking—set in a men’s prison, the gritty backdrop provides the perfect setting for a redemption story. The video follows an inmate’s journey, which beautifully depicts hope and healing through Jesus Christ. 

“Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” was arranged by Choir music director, Mack Wilberg, and is found on the Choir's album, Keep Christmas With You.

Lyrics

Infant holy, infant lowly,
For his bed a cattle stall;
Oxen lowing, little knowing,
Christ the babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging angels singing,
Nowells ringing, tidings bringing:
Christ the babe is Lord of all.

Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping
Vigil till the morning new
Saw the glory, heard the story,
Tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
Praises voicing, greet the morrow:
Christ the babe was born for you.
