In November, I composed an original Christmas song for our church. When I introduced it to the band, they all really liked it. They liked it a lot. I figured I might have something here. So, I made a simple recording of me singing and playing acoustic guitar, typed the lyrics and chords and scribbled down a rough score of the melody, chorus, bridge and ending. Spent $65 ($65?!!) to register it with the US copyright office. The WT learned the song, getting better as days progressed and often asked to play it at rehearsals. My wife describes it as a real "ear worm" for her as she sometimes finds herself singing it out loud. At our Christmas service morning rehearsal, we played the song and our senior pastor came in from his office. He said he liked it and asked if it was new. I smiled and said, "Yes it is." The whole team pointed at me and said, "He wrote it!" Pastor stepped out. We played the song again and pastor brought a couple elders and was talking and pointing at us. He pulled out his cell phone to video record us and sent the video to someone. He asked us to perform it again at our Christmas Eve service. Well, the song is a big hit at our church. Many folks have complimented me on it and say how much they liked it whenever they see me. It's weird for me because I have composed many songs since taking songwriting classes in the 1990's. We already play some of my originals songs at church. But I've never had a reaction like this to a composition. Honestly, the band really delivered it beautifully. At the CE service, the singers sang it with their eyes closed. That brings me to the point of my post. While planning a service in my office yesterday, the pastor came in. He asked me what I'm doing about "the song". Am I getting it out there? Can I get it published or recorded? At this point, it's a little late. Artists are not looking for new Christmas material until around August of each year. What should I do with the song?
