Whether you’re making an extensive playlist for your own pleasure, or for a holiday party, you may want to add some gospel music for Christmas cheer. Take a look here to find favorites, old and new.

Many of the songs on this list are considered gospel because of the specific singers or arrangements. Read on, and you’ll find a number of major artists singing beloved carols like “Joy to the World,” “Silent Night,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” The First Noel” and others. With the gospel tone, these songs’ deeper meanings shine through.

Some of these gospel hymns for Christmas are perfectly appropriate for church services during the holidays. “Silent Night,” for example, would be lovely performed as gospel music for Christmas Eve, especially at a midnight mass. The same can be said for “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” and “Away in a Manger.”
