The Wondrous Gift

A brand new Christmas song. Words and video are here.

Oh, to see the light the shines in the darkness
Oh, to see the place where my Lord was born
Oh, to hear the angels sing their praises
On that blessed Christmas morn

Oh, to hear the baby cry in the manger
Oh, to see how Mary loved Him so
Oh, to see how Joseph held Him closely
On that blessed Christmas morn

CHORUS
I wish that I had been there
I wish that I had seen
The wondrous gift was given
For all the world to see
But He said it is greater
That I would still believe
For though I was not there that day
He came to die for me

Oh, I want to turn my face from His suff’ring
Oh, I want to turn my face from His pain
Oh, I want to hear Him cry forgive them
Oh, I want to see Him rise again
Oh, I want to see Him rise again

On that blessed Christmas born
The Son of God was born
To take away our sins
To make us free within
What a wondrous gift
What a wondrous gift
What a wondrous gift God gave

CHORUS

 

The Angels Sing

I can hear the angels sing
Glory, glory, glory to the Lord most high
Glory, glory, glory to the Lord most high

I can hear the angels sing
Holy, holy, holy to the Lord most high
Holy, holy, holy to the Lord most high

For He is worthy, worthy
Worthy to be praised and adored
He is worthy, worthy
Worthy is my wonderful Lord

I can hear the angels sing
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is the Lord most high
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is the Lord most high

For He is worthy, worthy
Worthy to be praised and adored
He is worthy, worthy
Worthy is my wonderful Lord

Christmas Poetry

I Believe

I did not see the star that shone above so bright
I did not hear the innkeeper say there’s no room tonight
I did not see the shepherds or the wise men by His side
It’s written in His book so I believe

I did not hear Him teaching His gracious words of life
I did not see Him healing those who came to Him in strife
I did not seethe demons as they heard Him and took flight
It’s written in His book so I believe

CHORUS
I believe
I believe
With the faith that I was born with I believe
Though all may try to stop me
And take this faith from me
With all that is within me
I believe

I did not hear the crowds as they cried out crucify
I did not see Him hung with two thieves by His side
I did not hear Him fry out it is finished when he die
It’s written in the book so I believe

CHORUS

They laid Him in a tomb and sealed it with a stone
They guarded Him in death thinking He was all alone
But the grave could not hold Him
The stone could not contain Him
He rose up from the dead
I believe
I believe

CHORUS

All of it Comes From You

All of the love that I have
All of the joy in my heart
All of the friends I adore
All of it comes from you

All of the day to day peace
All of the blessings untold
All of the wisdom revealed
All of it comes from you

So on this Thanksgiving Day I give you thanks
Thanks for all you have done
My life is full and complete
Only because I have you

All of my plans and rewards
All of the things that I own
All of the breath in my lungs
All of it comes from you

Jesus, sweet Jesus
Savior redeemer and friend
I can’t imagine where I would be
If you had not first loved me

So on this Thanksgiving Day I give you thanks
Thanks for all you have done
My life is full and complete
Only because I have you

I Can’t Help but Praise Him

I can’t help but praise Him when Sorrows come
In the midst of the storm or in the midst of the calm

I can’t help but praise Him when doubts arise
When fear is real and when hope has died

For He has taken my transgressions and covered all my sins
Because of his compassion I’m free to walk with Him

CHORUS
So I lift his name is mighty name the mighty name of Jesus
I lift His mighty name. The mighty name of Jesus

I can’t help but praise him when my life is a mess
I can always count on his faithfulness

For He has taken my transgressions and covered all my sins
Because of his compassion I’m free to walk with Him

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I lift my hands I lift my voice and I sing Hallelujah
I lift my hands I lift my voice and I sing Hallelujah

CHORUS

Praise & Worship

I Can

I can hear Him
Gently speaking
In a whisper
Above the noise of this world
Kind words
Gentle words
Words of life and hope
Words that lift me out of darkness
Into light
I can hear Him

I can see Him
Shining brightly
Everywhere
In all of His creation
The stars
And the birds
Testify of His presence
His presence that is always near me
Without question
I can see Him

I can feel Him
Flowing softly
Through my being
Letting me know He is near
Holding me
Helping me
Walking close beside me
Carrying me when I fall down
He is there
I can feel Him

Oh God of wonder
How precious you are
How wonderful your ways
You fill my days
With your great grace
Your mercy runs
When I am down and out
You always pull me through
And then I know
No matter what comes
With you right here
I can

You Provide Everything

When I am down
You pick me up
When I am dry
You fill my cup
When I am tired
Your strength is enough
You [provide everything

When I have doubts
You give me faith
When I feel hopeless
You’re never late
When I face trials
You send me your grace
You provide everything

CHORUS
All that I need is from you
All I could want
All I desire
All that I need is from you
Help me to trust only you

When I mess up
Mercy finds me
When I face storms
You are my peace
When sorrow comes
Your joy surrounds me
You provide everything

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I can not do it myself
I can not make it myself
I can not handle this life on my own
Lord I depend on you

CHORUS
