Fr Mark Baumgarten - A Newborn King (Christmas)

Fr Mark Baumgarten - A Newborn King
Fr Mark Baumgarten has released a Christian Christmas (CCM) track called 'A Newborn King'.

The Christmas season is a time of joy, but it can also be a time of great anxiety. We're all trying to make our lives better, but it can be difficult to know how to do that when our world seems so full of pain. 

In this new song by Fr Mark Baumgarten, we get a glimpse into the struggle between cynicism and hope. 

Fr Mark is a priest and musician from Perth, Australia. The song has been produced by Fr Mark Baumgarten on the piano and lead vocal, Naya Chorale, St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Graeme Bell (bass), Andre Bourgault du Coudray (trombone), and Simon Groves (trumpet).

My favorite part of the lyrics is where Fr Mark sings: 'There's a newborn King, who's turned everything upside down. But 'pretender kings' are still clinging to their crowns... and so am I. Yet still the star, it shines on a weary world. And still our hearts, they pine for a priceless pearl of hope for us all.'

About Fr Mark Baumgarten:
