The Dawn of Grace is a Christmas album by the alternative rock/indie pop band Sixpence None the Richer. The record was released on October 14, 2008.[2]


The Dawn of Grace was produced by Steve Hindalong (City on a Hill, The Choir) and is made up of 10 tracks: eight traditional Christmas songs, including "Angels We Have Heard On High" and "Silent Night", featuring guest vocalist Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay, and two original Sixpence Christmas tunes called "The Last Christmas" and "Christmas for Two".

After spending four years apart, the band reunited for this album.

The subtitle on the cover says: A Collection of Original and Traditional Christmas Songs. Although no singles were released from the album, two animated music video were released for "Angels We Have Heard On High" and "Silent Night". The album reached #47 on the U.S. Christian Album Chart.
