The McClures Celebrate Joyful Expectation of 'Christmas Morning'

Nov 14 2020

Christmas Morning, the debut holiday EP from acclaimed Bethel Music singer/songwriters and worship leaders Paul and Hannah McClure, will be available November 13. Produced by David Whitworth, the six-track collection features five original selections co-penned by The McClures, as well as a new arrangement of the beloved Christmas favorite “O Holy Night.”



With an organic, pop-folk sound drawing from the couple’s North Carolina roots, Christmas Morning heralds the season with joyful, expectant moments of worship. From EP opener “Adore Him,” proclaiming the Holy mystery of Christ’s birth, death and resurrection, to “High King of Heaven/Jesus, We Love You,” combining newly-penned lyrics to the ancient hymn “Be Thou My Vision” with a reprisal of Bethel Music’s impassioned anthem “Jesus, We Love You,” the themes of Christmas Morning come together in the project’s title-cut and lead single. A studio version of “Christmas Morning” is now available on streaming platforms.

“We chose ‘Christmas Morning’ as the title track because it encapsulates, to me, what Christmas is,” Paul McClure says. “It tells the story of the Gospel, of Jesus coming to earth. It tells the significance of what that means; the Father loved the world so much that He sent Jesus. Every child’s excited for Christmas morning, and that’s what we get in relation to the Gospel as believers. Every day is Christmas morning living in the reality of Jesus and what He’s done for us. I think this song captures what we wanted to talk about - the Rescuer coming to save us at Christmas.”

imageServing as worship leaders and songwriters with Bethel Music and at Bethel Church in Redding, California, Paul and Hannah McClure have been featured on every major release for the label since 2010 with songs like “Jesus, We Love You,” “One Thing,” “Faithful to the End” and “How Great a King.” Driven by the buoyant lead singles “Now I See” and “Only Have One” - the latter of which was showcased on Spotify’s “New Music Friday Christian” and Apple Music’s “Today’s Christian” and “Worship Today” playlists - The McClures’ full-length Bethel Music debut, The Way Home, released last year to critical acclaim.
