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 

There is a Hope

 There is a hope that lives inside of me
 That sets the captive free
 There is a hope that all my enemies
 Will fall down at my feet
 There is a hope that one day I will bow
 Before His royal throne
 There is a hope that He is here with me
 I’ll never walk alone
 There is a hope
 There is a hope
  
 This hope is based upon the promise
 Jesus has given us forever
 His word is sealed in my heart and I won’t let go
 If I will stand before Him honest
 Calling His name He’ll always answer
 Where His Spirit is I know there is a hope
 There is a hope
  
 This hope brings life
 This hope brings freedom
 This hope brings deliverance
 This hope brings joy
 This hope is enduring
 This hope is assuring
 This hope is forever
 This hope is mine
  
 This hope is based upon the promise
 Jesus has given us forever
 His word is sealed in my heart and I won’t let go
 If I will stand before Him honest
 Calling His name He’ll always answer
 Where His Spirit is I know there is a hope
 There is a hope 

Chosen Star

 
 
 I look up at the stars
 And I see the Master’s plan
 He placed them one by one
 Before our time began
  
 All down through the ages
 Those stars have shown their light
 Always in formation
 To guide us in the night
  
 Then one night, a change was seen
 One star was singled out
 To shine much brighter than the rest
 A loud celestial shout
  
 On brightest star, Oh chosen star
 You shine your glorious light
 To lead us all to Christ the King
 On this most Holy night
  
 This star then found its special place
 To shine those brighter rays
 It took its place above a town
 Where God’s own Son was laid
  
 Three kings had seen the star so bright
 From lands so far away
 They came to bring gifts to the child
 In a manger filled with hay
  
 Gold, because He’s royalty
 As priest, the Frankincense 
 Myrrh, anointing for His death
 Which would be so intense
  
 On brightest star, Oh chosen star
 You shine your glorious light
 To lead us all to Christ the King
 On this most Holy night
  
   

This Thanksgiving Day

 Blossoming flowers 
 Birds in the air
 Rain in due season
 Clouds white and fair
  
 Moon in last quarter
 Stars shining bright
 Sun in the heavens
 Giving us light
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 Food on the table 
 Smells like a dream
 Choices of drinks
 Pie with whipped cream
  
 Family around us
 How blessed we are
 People that care
 Both near and afar
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 Joy overflows
 Peace overcomes
 Love overwhelms
 Thanksgiving has come
  
 Most of all thanks
 For mercy and grace
 That comes from my God
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day 

Oh, Lord Most High

 Oh, Lord most High, you are merciful
 You brought me out of the grave
 I was dead in my transgressions
 Then all of my sins you forgave
  
 Oh, Lord Most High, you are gracious
 You pour out your blessings on me
 Peace and joy, hope and love are all mine
 As my heart is laid down at your feet
  
 Or, Lord most High, you are patient
 There is so much you want me to change
 My life is still not quite perfect
 My priorities you rearrange
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are loving
 Despite my enduring pride
 You allow these trials and temptations
 So that only in you I can hide
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are holy
 My desire is to be more like you
 Take my heart, my soul and my spirit
 Show me what you want me to do
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are worthy
 The praise of my lips I will give
 I will bow down at your footstool
 And love you as long as I live 
Christmas Poetry

A Little Hole In Heaven

 A little hole in heaven
 Opened up that Christmas day 
 When Jesus Son of God 
 Came to earth as a little babe
  
 When He left His throne above
 He traveled through that hole
 A host of angels followed
 And one His story told
  
 He told it to some shepherds
 Out in the field that night
 They trembled at the Angel
 For he shone with heavenly light
  
 He told them that a Savior
 Was born in Bethlehem
 The full angelic choir sang
 The shepherds went to greet Him
  
 That hole let out the brilliant light
 That surged from Jesus throne
 It looked as if a giant star
 Above the manger shone
  
 Three kings from far off countries
 Saw the brilliant star so bright
 They set off on a journey
 With gifts for the promised child
  
 Yes a little hole in heaven
 Opened up that Christmas night
 Through it came our Savior
 Coming down to give us Light
 
 He shone the Light from heaven
 So that we could see our sin
 Then He died as our redeemer
 If our hearts would now repent
 
 Open up your heart to Jesus
 On this blessed Christmas day
 He came down from heaven’s glory
 So He could light your way
   

I Will Give Thanks

 I will give thanks to the Lord most High
 For His life, for His sacrifice
 I will give thanks to the Lord most High
 He’s given me new life
  
 I will give thanks for my God above
 Fort His constant abiding love
 I will give thanks to the Lord above
 He provides more than enough
  
 I will give thanks to the King of Kings
 He gives me joy and unending peace
 I will give thanks to the King of Kings
 He is my everything
  
 I will give thanks to Jesus Christ
 He gives me victory in the fight
 I will give thanks to Jesus Christ
 He’s the way, the truth and the life 

Works of Grace

 It really doesn’t matter what happens
 Whether good or bad
 Whether the enemy attacks of stands back
 Whether I stand or fall
 Whether I abide in the shelter of His wings
 Or walk on my own path alone
 It really doesn’t matter if I’m happy or sad
 If I’m blessed or in need
 If I’m energized or tired
 If I can clearly see the future 
 Or if I have no hope
 None of these things should determine
 If I give Him thanks
  
 Thanks is due the Lord at all times
 In every situation
 In every trial
 In every test
 In every hour of every day
 Because He is righteous
 He is worthy
 He is God in heaven
 No matter what happens on this earth
 He never changes
 His love always remains
 His compassion is from generation to generation
 His mercy can grace surround us
 Like a fortress and a refuge
 For all  he has already done
 Not for what is happening now
 I must give Him thanks
  
 Give Him thanks with the fruit of my lips
 Give Him thanks by my actions
 By working out my salvation
 By showing mercy to others
 By being full of grace and forgiveness
 My thanks is not just words of praise
 But works of grace
 Feeding the hungry
 Quenching the thirty
 Brining peace to the troubled
 And joy to the sorrowful
 I thank Him by spreading His love
 By sowing seeds of faith
 By sharing the Gospel
  
  
 Thanks is not an attitude
 It is gratitude
 Thanks is not a reaction
 It is an action
 Thanks is not just words
 But deeds
 Thanks is abiding in Him
 Thanks is making disciples
 Thanks is preaching the word
 Thanks is being in season and out of season
 Thanks should inhabit our lives
 Overflowing so others will see
 Not just hear
  
 Today
 This hour
 This minute
 Give thanks
 Give thanks to the Lord for all He has done
 For this great creation
 For the future He has for you
 For the joy that is set before you
 Thanks for your friends’
 Thanks for your enemies
 Thanks for your good times
 Thanks for your trials
 Thanks for His great compassion on you
 No matter what comes
 Or what doesn’t come
 Give thanks 

He is Good To Me

 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 For His mercy endures forever
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 He is good. He is good to me
  
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 For His love will last forever
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 He is good.  He is good to me
  
 All of my life I had been wandering like a ship without a sail
 All of my days were spent as lost as I could be
 But as I travelled down the road
 Jesus was there to take my load
 I was so glad when His mercy covered me
  
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 For His mercy endures forever
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 He is good. He is good to me
  
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 For His love will last forever
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 He is good.  He is good to me
