Hillsong’s New Holiday Album Release “Peace Project”
Written by Christi Given | December 2, 2017
This year, Hillsong released a new Christmas album called The Peace Project. There are different songs on their official website, hillsong.com, that have devotionals with each song. Click here to read and follow each blog with the theme of the worship Christmas song.
One of the songs is called “Seasons” and is about Ecclesiastes 3, and also discusses the analogy of harvesting and sowing into your season of life. There are set times and seasons as human beings and in the body of Christ we experience different circumstances that grow us closer to Christ. There are times of abundance and seasons of the wilderness or waiting. What season are you in?
Listen to the Hillsong Worship track “Seasons” right here.
“Lyrics such as ‘Like a seed in the snow, I’ve been buried to grow’ is true of life. There will be times in your journey when you feel the cold face of life, where you feel lost in seclusion or loneliness—yet it is within this season that you discover the deeper places of relationship with the Lord, whose promise and presence is constant. If you also remain faithful and constant, you will emerge with depth only discovered in the winter season.
“Lyrics such as ‘Then if you’re not done working, God, I’m not done waiting’ frame the loyal-promise that the song also gives expression to. Whether you fully comprehend it or not, God is loyally committed to His work within you. He is the master architect and He knows the exact timing and pace of what is perfect for you. So I encourage you to rest in His providence and become acquainted with the treasure to be found within ‘the wait.’ Be diligent with your current here and now, and all your tomorrows will arrive as divinely purposed.”

Some of the songs from the project are “Joy to the World,” “When I Think Upon Christmas,” “Theme of the Eastern Star,” “Peace Upon the Earth,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Hark” and more. Some of my favorites are “Noel” and “Seasons.” The reason behind the album is that a “deeply challenged world needs peace, and those who are lost need to know there truly is a Savior and Prince of Peace who died for them. But you also need to know His personal peace within your heart and soul—therefore my prayer is that God’s faithful and loyal Word will continue to frame the building and advancement of your life.”
