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

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

A Humble Act

I cannot think of Jesus without thinking of His birth

He left His heav’nly home to become a babe on earth

The worship of the angels was replaced by shepherds praise

As they laid Him in a manger filled with hay 

What a humble act

The Fathers love displayed 

That Christmas day

I cannot think of Jesus without thinking of His life 

He healed all those who came and made the dead alive 

He taught about the kingdom as He walked from town to town 

Authority displayed on earthly ground

What a humble act

The Fathers love relayed

To all who pray

I cannot think of Jesus without thinking if His pain 

They beat Him and they whipped Him again and again

A crown of thorns they placed as the blood rushed down His face

Carrying His cross in such disgrace

What a humble act

The Fathers will obeyed

His Son He gave

I cannot think of Jesus without thinking of His death

The nails were through His hands and feet He struggled for His breath

Father please forgive them came His plea before He died 

Then He gave His life for you and I

What a humble act

The Fathers grace came down 

Became our own

I cannot think of Jesus without thinking that He lives 

The stone was rolled away and His body was amiss

He showed Himself to thousands for death had no hold on Him

Victory over death and hell was His

What a triumph song 

The Fathers power to save 

Up from the grave

I always think of Jesus because He walks with me

Keeping me from harm through every stormy sea

He tells me that He loves me and His grace will cover me

He comforts me with His gentle peace

What a loving Savior 

What a faithful friend

Lord of all creation

With me ’til the end

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

Music to My Ears

When I think about the fact
That He left His royal throne
I can’t help but praise His name
When I think about the fact
In a stable He was born
I can’t help but praise His name
When I think about the star
That led the wise men there
And the great angelic choir
That the shepherds saw in fear
When I think about His love
To become a babe so dear
I can’t help but praise His name

Bless His name. His mighty name
The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair
Bless His name. The matchless name
The name of Jesus is music to my ears

When I think about the fact
He bore the stripes for me
I can’t help but praise His name
When I think about the fact
That He died to set me free
I can’t help but praise His name
When I think about the pain
That He endured for me
How He gave His life for all
That day at Calvary
When I think about the grace
That He poured out for me
I can’t help but praise His name

Bless His name. His mighty name
The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair
Bless His name. The matchless name
The name of Jesus is music to my ears

I’ll sing His praise
Every day
With Loudest voice
And hands up-raised
I’ll lift Him high
With all my might
The wondrous name
Of Jesus

Bless His name. His mighty name
The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair
Bless His name. The matchless name
The name of Jesus is music to my ears

HIStory

The story is told
How a long time ago
The God of creation
Looked down below
And said “Son, it is time Jesus
For you to bestow
Our mercy and grace on mankind ”

So the Son left His throne
To bring freedom to all
He was born of a virgin
And was laid in a stall
Shephard were summoned
To greet Him with awe
On that marvelous,  glorious morn

He walked on this earth
Spreading His love
Teaching the people
The truths from above
But the leaders of men
Had about had enough
They condemned Him to death on a cross

Beaten and bruised
Crown of thorns on His brow
He carried His cross
Through the streets of the town
Galgotha awaited
His love would be known
As His wrists and His feet were nailed

From the cross His blood flowed
Down and out for all time
“Father, forgive them”
He said as He died
His mercy and grace
Were released to mankind
For whoever will call on His name

They laid Him to rest
In a tomb someone gave
And the Romans did guard Him
By night and by day
But they fainted in awe
As the stone rolled away
And Jesus arose from the grave

Oh wonderful Savior
Christ Jesus my Lord
You have freed me from sin
It us you I adore
And you rose so that heaven
Is for me evermore
When I call out to you to be saved

I love you, Jesus
I’ll follow your ways
And I’ll tell your story
All of my days
I’ll pray for my family
And friends to be saved
Your mercy and grace are now mine
Help me share them all of the time
So that others will know
That you came down below
As the Savior for all of mankind

 

Meek and Mild

She came riding on a donkey
From many towns away
Ready to give birth to her first child
The ride she took was rugged
The trail sometimes was steep
Her journey would go on for many miles

Joseph walked and held the reins
Guiding her along
Wishing he could ease the pain she felt
When they reached their destination
Relief did fill their souls
They sought a room to settle for the night

The innkeeper did all He could
To find for them a room
But a stable was the only place he had
Mary’s child was born that night
In a manger filled with hay
Wrapped in rags the blessed Savior lay

Meek and mild
Mother and child
Filled all prophecy that night
Angels praised
Shepherds gazed
Below the star so bright

Shepherds watching flocks that night
Were summoned by the angels
Go and see the babe in Bethlehem
He us Savior Christ to all
Peace is what He brings
Glory be to God in the highest

As they knelt before Him
They realized their place
As all of history would mark this day
Simple lowly shepherds
Were called to be the ones
They were the first to bow to Him and pray

Not the rich
Not the mighty
Not the ones in power
He calls us in humility
To worship Him this hour

Meek and mild
Mother and child
Filled all prophecy that night
Angels praised
Shepherds gazed
Below the star so bright
