You Gotta Get up (Christmas Song) (right-click on the file for download)
One of my all time favorites. Rich Mullins created some wonderful music, the most notable being “Awesome God”. I had the chance during my early days of college to see Rich perform before a small audience in Jackson, TN. A barefoot servant of the Lord took the stage. While singing I found myself involved in Worship! I do not think it would be a far stretch to say that Mullins did for Worship music in the 80’s and 90’s the same as Chris Tomlin has today. In this song “You Gotta Get Up” we hear a whimsical very child like Mullins.
For centuries individuals have been reading the proclamations and prophecies of the Old Testament. Then they have found themselves celebrating the birth of that babe in a manger. Because of that baby born in Bethlehem there is now peace on earth and goodwill towards men.
