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 

The Reason

 Shoppers are shopping
 Mailmen are walking
 Delivering gifts bought on line
 Trees all are glimmering
 Houses are shimmering
 Lights hung to cheer us in time
  
 Carols are ringing
 Sleigh Bells are jingling
 Songs of the season are here
 Bright lights are glowing
 Egg nog is flowing
 All midst the words of good cheer
  
 We all are running
 From each day’s beginning
 To celebrate Christmas each year
 But how about stopping
 Take time from shopping 
 And realize the reason where here
  
 The star was a’shining
 The cattle were lowing
 When Mary gave birth to a son
 Shepherds were praising
 Sheep were there grazing
 A Savior for all had now come
  
 He went ‘round teaching
 And gave many healing
 His words filled the hearer with life
 But leaders were seething
 And they started pleading
 To have Jesus crucified
  
 He went through the suff’ring
 And became the off’ring
 For all of the sins of mankind
 The grave not confining
 He came out a’rising
 Defeating death for all of time
  
 This is the reason
 For Christmas season
 Let’s not forget why we sing
 For this is God’s son
 Who became the one
 To save all of us from ours sin
  
 So, I will sing praise
 To His wonderful name
 I will lift up my voice to the King
 He’s always the same
 And His love will remain
 He has given to us everything
