A Christmas Prayer

 The day is finally here
 A day of mirth and good cheer
 We’ve waited this long
 And sung all the songs
 That deck the halls this year
  
 The Christmas tree shines so bright
 And the houses are covered with lights
 The presents are many
 The foods getting ready
 And soon we’ll all wake from the night
  
 The children flock to the tree
 And open their presents with glee
 Paper flies everywhere
 Parents laugh without a care
 They just hope the children are pleased
  
 Once all the presents are open
 It’s time for the feast to begin
 We sit at the table
 And all who are able
 Take turns as we start to dig in
  
 Then a gentle hand says wait
 Let’s take a minute to pray
 So they all bow their heads
 As these words are said
 To give God the thanks for this day
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
 Because God sent His son
 In a manger bed He lay
 Such a simple start
 Yet we celebrate this day
 Because that little babe
 Gave His life our debt to pay
 And now we’re born again
 If we follow in His way
  
 There’s a hush that fills the room
 As a little child says
 I want to follow Him
 Will you show me the way?
 And right there at the table
 Before the meal begins
 We pray the sinner’s prayer
 And that child has entered in
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
   

It’s Christmas Day

 It’s a day of great excitement
 It’s a day of warmth and mirth
 It’s a day of friends and family
 It’s Christmas Day
  
 It’s a day to exchange presents
 It’s a day to have a feast
 It’s a day share an eggnog
 It’s Christmas Day
  
 It’s a day we all year long for
 It’s a day we hope for snow
 It’s a day of favorite music
 It’s Christmas Day
  
 But more than all these wonderful things
 More than almost anything
 It’s a day that we all celebrate
 The birthday of the King
  
 For Jesus came to earth this day
 In a lowly manger He did lay
 He came to take our sins away
 On this Christmas Day
  
 Let’s all make sure we celebrate
 The birthday of our Savior great
 Who came to die in our place
 On this Christmas Day 

What A very Special Night

 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 Mary and Joseph travelled oh so many miles
 They awaited the birth of their first child
 Looking for a room at the inn
 There was no room for them within
 A stable would be there room for the night
  
 The shepherds were startled by an Angelic light
 Do not be afraid echoed through the night
 I bring good tidings of Joy
 Peace on earth for girls and boys
 And a host of Angels Loud Hosannas sing
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 They came with their flocks to find that babe
 Wrapped in some clothes and laid in the hay
 They knelt down to worship Him
 Assured He’s the coming King
 Then for a while they would worship and stay
  
 Mary and Joseph knew their child was special
 They’d both been told of His coming arrival
 But they held their peace
 When the shepherds did speak
 And asked why they were summoned by angels
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 The wise men arrived from the east they had come
 They knew that the star was a sign from above
 Their gifts they did bear
 Gold, incense and myrrh
 They knelt down to worship this child filled with love
  
 Thus, the scene was set
 No one would forget
 That the Son of God came as a babe
 And for many years
 Mary shed her tears
 For she knew what a price he would pay
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night 

Christmas Eve Prayer

 It’s Christmas Eve
 The day before
 We celebrate
 The newborn Lord
  
 I hope all is 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 

Sinking Ground

 No one expected the angels
 No one expected the star
 No one expected that shepherds would bow
 Or that kings would come from afar
 No one knew that a child would be born
 In a manger filled with hay
 Only the Father knew His plan
 On that blessed Christmas day
  
 We hustle and bustle, thinking all is well
 As presents are piled up high
 We fix our great feasts and tell of good cheer
 While the sun rises high in sky
 We look at our children, all merry and bright
 As they open their presents with glee
 With great hope we look out on this beautiful day
 In the land of the brave and the free
  
 But in truth all around us the world’s fading fast
 Into a world of defeat
 Morality slowly is withered away
 And a plague fills us all with disease
 They speak of a cure when before there was none
 All around us people bow down
 We must sound the alarm in this worst of all times
 We are standing on sinking ground
  
 Our Father above sees all that transpires
 He knows when the time will be right
 That the trumpet will sound for all men to hear
 In the clouds His Son will arrive
 He will come as a thief in the night that day
 No one knows when is the time
 Just as He came on that Christmas Day
 Only few will be chosen to rise 
  
 Are you ready for Him to appear that day?
 Is your heart settled in His true grace?
 Have you asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord?
 Does He receive all of your praise?
 On this Christmas Day give your whole life to Him
 All your heart and your soul and your mind
 Tomorrow may be too late my friend
 And you’ll find you’re left behind
 Unexpected by many He will show up
 Please don’t say I’ll do it next time
  
  
   

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
   

Extraordinary Day

 It’s not ordinary at all
 What happened that day
 When heaven came down
 In a manger to lay
  
 Angels came singing
 To shepherds alone
 Kings came from far
 As the brightest star shone
  
 Mother and father
 Had traveled so far
 To find the inn full
 Underneath that star
  
 Bet both of them knew
 That this special day
 The Savior was born
 To take sin away
  
 Yet the kept quiet
 About their sons fate
 He didn’t come too soon
 And He was not late
  
 The time was just right
 And today we see
 That Jesus redeems
 Both you and me
  
 Let’s never forget
 That extraordinary day
 When heaven came down
 And in a manger lay 

The Gift of Jesus

 He came for me
 On that dark and cloudless night
 So long ago
 He came for me
 Shepherds came when angels called
 They worshipped Him
  
 What a gift, what a precious gift
 More than silver, more than gold
 More than all the wealth foretold
 More than power, more than fame
 More than any other name
 The gift of Jesus
  
 He came for me
 Left His royal throne in heaven
 To sleep in hay
 He came for me
 The Son of God became a baby
 To set me free
  
 What a gift, what a precious gift
 More than silver, more than gold
 More than all the wealth foretold
 More than power, more than fame
 More than any other name
 The gift of Jesus
  
 The name that saves me
 The name that heals me
 The name that sets me free
 The name that delivers me
 The name that rescues me
 The name that provides for me
 The name above all names
 The name of Jesus
  
 What a gift, what a precious gift
 More than silver, more than gold
 More than all the wealth foretold
 More than power, more than fame
 More than any other name
 The gift of Jesus 

Amazing, Incredible Love

 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He came to earth to die?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He sacrificed His life?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 That I did not realize?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He had for me
  
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He walks with me each day?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He guides me on my way?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That I know He’s here to stay?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He has for me
  
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Even in the hardest times?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Would I die to give you life?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Every time you cross the line?
 Nothing short of amazing
 Nothing short of incredible
 Nothing short of a miracle should be my love for you
