This is the second resource we're posting in connection with the RESOUNDworship.org 'Christmas Songs' album.  Joel Payne's 'What Kind of Throne' has been one of the most popular songs on the site for the last few years, and this new recording features fantastic vocals by Gemma White and gorgeous production from the weeksweeksweeks boys.

We've created a lyric video for the song, which also incorperates biblical text from Philippians 2, and a question for the listener to consider their own response to the wonder of the incarnation.  We imagine it could be used at Christmas services, perhaps as a reflection or a response to a talk.  Alternatively, if you want to sing/perform the song live we have posted a PowerPoint version, and you can get charts, choral parts and even an orchestral score from RESOUNDworship.org

Finally, you might just like our 'burning hay' imagery, as it attempts to refect some of the paradox's of the holy God of the universe coming to live amongst us, and echoes of the burning bush.  If so we're including that as a free loop which you could use behind any Christmas lyrics or text.  Enjoy!

Below are some stills from the PowerPoint:
