This Christmas

 Amidst all of the packages
 That sit under the tree 
 As I look around the house
 Decorated in beauty
 And I smell the sweet aroma
 Of the up and coming feast
 I can’t help but think of Him
  
 And when the day is over
 And the crowd is heading home
 I will sit in my nice lounge chair
 And my mind will surely roam
 Perhaps I’ll take a nap
 As I take some time alone
 To give thanks to my Savior and Lord
  
 Let’s lift up holy hands
 To Jesus Christ our Lord
 This Christmas
 Let’s lift our voices high
 To the one that we adore
 This Christmas
  
 Let’s fully magnify
 The one who came to die
 Let’s shout aloud our praise
 Because He gave us life
 Let’s worship the great name
 Of our Savior Jesus Christ
 This Christmas Day
  
 He came to earth a babe
 And in a manger lay
 He gave up heavens throne
 To come to earth this day
 Shepherds came to worship
 Wise Man kneeled and prayed
 As they gave their gifts to Him that day         
  
 He grew to be a man
 Anointed from above
 And then condemned to die
 To show us of His love
 He gave His life for me
 His mercy is enough
 This Christmas Day
  
 Let’s lift up holy hands
 To Jesus Christ our Lord
 This Christmas
 Let’s lift our voices high
 To the one that we adore
 This Christmas
  
 Let’s fully magnify
 The one who came to die
 Let’s shout aloud our praise
 Because He gave us life
 Let’s worship the great name
 Of our Savior Jesus Christ
 This Christmas Day
   

He Came to Die

 At Christmas time we celebrate
 The Birthday of our Lord
 Born this day in Bethlehem
 A stable His abode
  
 Shepherds came to greet Him
 For an angel told them where
 They bowed before the little child
 While Mary looked on there
  
 He grew and started preaching
 Repent for God is nigh
 He healed all that would come to Him
 He taught them with no lies
  
 His message made the rulers made
 The planned to take His life
 But He knew all about their plans
 The prophets all were right
  
 We celebrate His birth today
 And rightfully we should
 But more important is the fact
 He came to die for you
  
 His purpose from the very start
 Was to give His life away
 Please don’t forget the price He paid
 On this Christmas day
