Joy is Full

The shopping brouhaha
Is very far
From Bethlehem’s star

We save a bunch of time
Not in line
But shopping online

Then we are quite mindful
Joy is full
From Christ’s arrival

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

 

Christmas Cheer

It’s once again that time of year
When we ring out our Christmas cheer
We sing the songs of Jesus birth
Declaring Him through all the earth

Hark the Herald angels sing
Hear the bells oh hear them ring
O come oh come Emmanuel
A silent night for all to tell

Far away in manger lay
What child is this who sleeps in hay
Three great kings come from afar
Joy to the world beneath that star

We’ve heard angels from on high
Little town of Bethlehem sighs
Come all ye faithful raise your voice
Come let us adore our Lord

In all these songs we give Him praise
For He our sin has far erased
This Christmas time I hope you know
The reason for the seasons show

Let Christ be lifted high above
Tell all your friends of His great love
That He would leave His royal throne
To come to earth and die alone

Pretty Lights

Pretty Lights

We have a tradition in my house
At Christmas time each year
We decorate with pretty lights
To show our Christmas cheer

And right in the center of all
The scene of the manger is placed
Because what would Christmas be
Without giving Christ our praise

Remember

The baby in the manger
The shepherds in the field
The wise men and their gifts
The angel in the heavens
The star shines up above
Mary bows her head
Joseph standing tall

The pageant is before us
As Christmas day does near
Maybe in the town square
Or in our church so dear

Usually little children
Act out the yearly scene
Showing us the Christ child
The way that it would seem

But do we really see Him
The King of Kings is He
Lord of all the heavens
Filled with God’s mercy

Do we bow before Him
Repenting of our sins
Do we give Him honor
And ask Him to come in

Come in to all our failures
Come in to all our pain
Come in to rescue us
And save us once again

This Christmas as you watch
The pageant and the show
Remember that this child
Is the one who saves your soul

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

This Child

We approach this season with anticipation
Our hearts burst forth with exhilaration
Each day is filled with great expectation
For Christmas Day to come

When I was young it was presents galore
That I would dash across the floor
To receive many gifts I would adore
When Christmas Day had come

But now the day is filled so much more
With that blessed hope and eternal joy
The Child that came is Christ my Lord
My Savior that has come

Let’s not forget what God has done
By sending us His only Son
To die upon a cross alone
To bear our sins away

Oh what love He has for you
That he would bear your sins for you
This Christmas make Him Lord of all
This Child has come for you

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
