Remember

The baby in the manger
The shepherds in the field
The wise men and their gifts
The angel in the heavens
The star shines up above
Mary bows her head
Joseph standing tall

The pageant is before us
As Christmas day does near
Maybe in the town square
Or in our church so dear

Usually little children
Act out the yearly scene
Showing us the Christ child
The way that it would seem

But do we really see Him
The King of Kings is He
Lord of all the heavens
Filled with God’s mercy

Do we bow before Him
Repenting of our sins
Do we give Him honor
And ask Him to come in

Come in to all our failures
Come in to all our pain
Come in to rescue us
And save us once again

This Christmas as you watch
The pageant and the show
Remember that this child
Is the one who saves your soul

Bethlehem

What yonder star is shining bright
What wonder in this dazzling light
That splits the sky and stills the night
The star of Bethlehem

It shines down on a manger’s hay
Where just a small newborn does lay
His mother and his father pray
This night in Bethlehem

An angel comes to fields afar
He tells the shepherds of the star
The leave their flocks and travel far
To little Bethlehem

This world will never be the same
Since the night this baby came
The call Emmanuel His name
This day in Bethlehem

And he will reign o’er all the earth
For all creation knows His worth
We all rejoice to praise His birth
Way off in Bethlehem

So lift you’re voices high this day
Give Jesus Christ all of your praise
He came down this world to save
To chosen Bethlehem

 

This Night

This night is a holy night.
With the star shining brightly in the sky
Where the child lay
This night is a holy night.
For the spirit of God has come to stay
In a stable filled with hay.
It’s a Holy Night

This star is a holy star.
Shining so brightly in the sky
There to light the way
This star is a holy star.
Giving light to Mary’s newborn babe
He has come the world to save.
It’s a Holy Star.

All of heaven rejoices, singing hallelujah
Emmanuel has come to earth
Angels ring in His coming on this glorious day
The son of God has come to save

This child is a holy child.
The angels proclaim His lowly birth
To shepherds in the field
This child is a holy child.
Kings bearing gifts come from afar
And they kneel before the child.
He’s a Holy Child.

Lift up your voice and sing praise to the newborn king
Good will to man and peace on earth He brings
Join with the chorus as angels sing
Praises to the King. Sing praises to the King!

All of heaven rejoices, singing hallelujah
Emmanuel has come to earth
Angels ring in His coming on this glorious day
The son of God has come to save

This Child

We approach this season with anticipation
Our hearts burst forth with exhilaration
Each day is filled with great expectation
For Christmas Day to come

When I was young it was presents galore
That I would dash across the floor
To receive many gifts I would adore
When Christmas Day had come

But now the day is filled so much more
With that blessed hope and eternal joy
The Child that came is Christ my Lord
My Savior that has come

Let’s not forget what God has done
By sending us His only Son
To die upon a cross alone
To bear our sins away

Oh what love He has for you
That he would bear your sins for you
This Christmas make Him Lord of all
This Child has come for you

The Day After Christmas

The day has quickly past
The gifts are all unwrapped
The wrappings have been swiftly thrown away
The Christmas feast is done
Guests have all gone home
Now you rest from such a busy day

Your mind goes drifting back
To the year that has just past
You write down all the wonderful events
Then you start to plan
For the year that is at hand
Hoping to achieve the very best

You start to make a list
Of thinks that you would wish
Would come true in the coming year
Perhaps this year would be
A good year to agree
A closer walk with God would be so dear

Take more time to pray
Read the word each day
Listen for the sound of His sweet voice
Help those who have needs
Be a friend indeed
Always strive to make the righteous choice

Tell God all your fears
Let Him dry your tears
He will fill your heart with His sweet peace
Bring your needs to Him
And you will always win
All your doubts and worry He’ll release

With these resolutions
We know that the conclusion
Will open up a year that’s full of life
So please take time to pray
That you would find a way
To have a closer walk with Jesus Christ

He Came Down

Down from above
Bringing His love
The Savior came on Christmas day
Babe in the hay
Quiet He lay
While angels proclaimed His praise

Shepherds rejoiced
They heard Angels voice
To Bethlehem they made their way
Bowing in honor
Glory forever
To Jesus who came as a babe

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

I cannot imagine
His love I can’t fathom
That He would give up His throne
His birth was obscure
His life was a blur
Only three years was this earth His home

From lowly beginning
To triumphant King
He had to give all he had
His death on the cross
Was such a great loss
But victory came in the end

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

Emmanuel
God with us
The form of a babe
The Lord of Lords lay
Ready to redeem us all

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

Christmas Eve Prayer

It’s Christmas Eve
The day before
We celebrate
The newborn Lord

I hope all’s well
With you today
Have you asked Him
Your life to save

When Jesus came
That fateful night
That baby boy
Brought with Him light

A light that shines
In all our hearts
To bring the life
His love imparts

A life that’s filled
With heavens peace
Enduring hope
Joys never cease

His promise came
When He was born
Salvation brought
That Christmas morn

My prayer this day
For all of you
Is season filled
With life that’s full

That you will find
Salvation’s way
On this December
Christmas Day

What A Night

What a Night
A glorious night
Star shines bright
A guiding light

Shepherds praise
The newborn babe
Down in the hay
Messiah lay

Glory glory glory in the highest
Glory glory glory sang the chorus

Angels say
Don’t be afraid
Your Savior came
Christ is His name

You will find him
In Bethlehem
Wrapped up and warm
In Mary’s arms

Glory glory glory in the highest
Glory glory glory sang the chorus

Chorus of angels
Proclaim peace on earth
Good will to men
Because of His birth

Shepherds go see Him
Mary they tell
Of Angel praises
All will be well

Glory glory glory in the highest
Glory glory glory sang the chorus

Magical night
Holy and blessed
Jesus came down
God gave His best

All that will seek Him
Peace they will find
Salvation for all
True love is mine

Glory glory glory in the highest
Glory glory glory sang the chorus

You’ll Find Him Near

I was walking down the street 
In Bethlehem one day
There were crowds of people all around
And I found no place to stay
I walked a little further
To find a place to lay
And what did I discover
But a baby in some hay

The mother was so happy
The father was in awe
Then shepherds came and worshiped
And I just sat and thought
Who is this little child
That Shepherds came and saw
I asked them why they came
And their story hit me hard

They said they saw an Angel
And He said they should not fear
That a child had  been born
The Messiah had appeared
And then a band of Angels
They sang  be of good cheer
Go and greet the child
You will find Him really near

When I heard their story
I bowed my head and prayed
If this is the Messiah
I had to change my ways
I knew that He was coming soon
And He will come to save
When I prayed for Him to touch me
He forgave me by His grace

He’s coming back again my  friend
And it could be any day
If you have not accepted Him
Be sure you’re not too late
Ask Him in your heart today
A prayer’s the only way
And He will wash your sins away
Be born again  today
