This is the first song I recorded for this album. Just me and David Johnson. I had never met the musicians, and felt I had to prove myself. They all stood in the control watching carefully through the window. Afterward, they all nodded and said (some directly, some directly) “Well, okay then. Let’s do this.”
I wanted this to be so soft that David and I wouldn’t wake the baby. Silent Night has that kind of intimacy. In this version, it’s just you, me and Jesus.
