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

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

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

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

 

Ponder These Things

Lord of the Heavens

Seated on the right hand of God

Four and twenty elders worshipping

Sing glory and honor and power and might

To the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Exalted above all others

Since the beginning of time

Glorious and majestic

Full of awe and wonder

All things created by Him

All things created for Him

Beautiful beyond description

More precious than silver or gold

Merciful and gracious

Longsuffering and full of goodness

Worthy of all praise

Son of the most high God

Holy is He

King of heaven and earth

Left His heavenly place

Left the splendor and the glory

Left the right hand of God

Left His Father

Left His power and authority

Left His throne

To come to this earth

Disrobed of His glory

Clothed in rags

A baby in a manger

No honor bestowed Him

No welcome of royalty

But animals in the stable

A star announcing His birth

Brightly shines above the city

Wise men from afar witness the star

They start their journey

Angels announcing His birth to shepherds

Not to kings

Sing glory to God in the Highest

Say the Savior, Christ the Lord, has come

As a babe in as manger

Beckon the shepherds to go and see

They come and tell Mary their tale

And bow before the King of Kings

Little baby in the hay

Mary ponders these things in her heart

We should so ponder these things

His humility

His love

His sacrifice

All for us

All for you

All for me

The Songs of Christmas

Hear the sounds of Christmas
Ringing in the air
Sounds that warm your heart
Meant for all to hear

Jingle Bells are jingling
Everywhere you go
Wishing Merry Christmas
To all who hear them toll

The First Noel has sounded
From choirs bringing cheer
Noel, Noel Born is the King
Is music to our ears

Precious songs of Christmas
Songs if warmth and cheer
Sung with all your heart
Every single year

And then a chorus fills the air
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
Voices of the highest praise
Glory to the newborn King

Oh, little town of Bethlehem
A town we’ve grown to love
Is visited by three wise men
Who saw he star above

Sing the tale of Christmas
With familiar lines
From children to our elders
Enjoying every rhyme

Away in lowly manger
No room was found for them
In hay they laid their baby
And there His tale begins

Silent Night, Holy Night
When Jesus Christ was born
The songs of His appearing
Are songs that bring us joy

Joy to the World
Jesus Christ has come
Born to die for all mankind
Praise the Holy One

Sing the songs of Christmas
Lift your praise above
Sing with all your heart
Songs we know and love

 

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
