Watch: Remember the true meaning of Christmas with new music video of 'I Know That My Redeemer Lives'

by | Dec. 03, 2020

 “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” might not be what comes to mind when you think of Christmas music. But as a beautiful new video put out by the Church reminds us, if Christmas is all about Christ, then perhaps this is one of the most fitting songs we could listen to at this time of year.  

Featuring a powerful array of paintings of the Savior from artists like Annie Henrie Nader, Greg Olsen, Simon Dewey, and others, the video highlights the stirring lyrics of the beloved hymn as sung by young Latter-day Saint songwriter and performer Nadia Khristean.  

“Beginning with the wonders of His birth and touching upon the many highlights from His life of miracles, the video culminates with masterful artwork of His Atoning sacrifice and glorious ascension into heaven,” the description reads on YouTube.  

You can watch the full video below to uplift your spirit today, or use it in an upcoming family night or Zoom Sunday School lesson.
