about

Stephen Shutters Cumming, Georgia

Born in the mid-nineties, Stephen Curtis Shutters grew up under the influence of Nintendo, VHS tapes, Star Wars, purple ketchup, and music from artists such as DC Talk, Everyday Sunday, and Relient K. Today he writes songs that have been labeled as "interesting and unique" and "chilling and emotional" with a voice accused of being "much like Daniel Powter's (husky and soft)." ... more

Track Name: Jingle Bells
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

It's fifty degrees outside
The leaves still orange and yellow
All by myself inside
Some booze with lights down mellow

She rests on the laundry pile
While I rest on thoughts
Of loneliness and sorrow
But there's joy for my tomorrow
Track Name: In the Cold
Dreading and packing
Yeah, you’re rushing and slacking
Driving, you’re speeding
Till you’re stuck in that traffic
In the cold

Swearing and breaking
That promised estimation
Of the time when you arrive
But now you’ve finally made it
In the cold

And it’s just like you never left your home

‘Cause your heart is in the hearth with
A burning energy, the warmth of family
Their smiles send reconciling
Songs of harmony over the cacophony
Of the hustle and bustle, the ironic struggle
Of the celebration of love, joy, and peace
And for now you are free from the cold

Running and tripping
Yeah, you're sliding and slipping
Balls of ice flying
Till those bodies they're hitting
In the cold

And it's just like you never left your home

‘Cause your heart is in the hearth with
A burning energy, the warmth of family
Their smiles send reconciling
Songs of harmony over the cacophony
Of the hustle and bustle, the ironic struggle
Of the celebration of love, joy, and peace
And in this love you are free from the cold
Track Name: O Holy Night
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Where words have seared and the soul felt no worth
Stabbed in the back and left alone to tumble
The heart—it breaks; the weary bodies mourn

Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Hope was born
O night divine, O night
O night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love, and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And love betrayed shall forgiveness receive
Sweet hymns of pain offered ever to Thee
This truth remains, forever all the same

Christ is the Lord
So ever, ever praise we
His grace and mercy
Ever more proclaim
O night divine
Track Name: Come Thou Fount
Come Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount; I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I’m come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let that grace now, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee

Prone to wander; Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, Lord; take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

O that day when freed from sinning
I shall see Thy lovely face
Clothed then in blood-washed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace

Come, my Lord; no longer tarry
Take my ransomed soul away
Send Thine angels now to carry
Me to realms of endless day
