Don’t Take The Cross Out of Christmas

I am sure that the angel were stunned
To see the throne empty that day
When the Son of God came down from heaven
And became a mere mortal babe

He created all things by His power
He provided all things man would need
But now in His greatest assignment
He came down to die on a tree

Don’t take the cross out of Christmas
He died on a tree meant for me
Don’t take the cross out of Christmas
It was there that He set me free

I cannot understand His mercy
Nor the thought of His amazing grace
They were offered when He came from heaven
To be nailed to a cross in my place


His story was from the beginning
The blood of the Lamb must be shed
He suffered and died
As my sacrifice
Now I’ll praise Him with all of my breath

Christmas poetry

The Only Way

Welcomed as a baby
In a manger He lay
Shepherds came to greet Him
Kings from far away

People came to see Him
As He taught them truth
Everyone that came to Him
Found love that He imbued

Day turned into darkness
He crowds all turned away
Soldiers came to take Him
No one with Him would stay

Beaten, bruised and scarred
A crown of thorns He wore
Nailed upon a cross
His garments they all tore

As He hung there bleeding
Breath barely possible
He cried out to is the Father
Please forgive them all

Then He died for all mankind
His blood shed on that cross
Redemption freely given
His grace for all of us	

In three days, He arose
Escaped a sealed-up tomb
He now abides in Heaven
The Lamb upon the throne

This grace that He extended
He day he came to earth
Was finally fulfilled
On the cross and with His death

Accept His gift of love today
And know His peace within
He only way to heaven
Is forgiveness for your sins

For this peace the angels sang of
To shepherds in the field
Is only yours if you decide
Your life to Him to yield

He stands there knocking at the door
Please open up your heart
The baby born this Christmas morn
Will give you a new start

New life is for the taking
The best gift ever given
A baby born to die for you
The only way to heaven

It’s All jesus

If there’s one thing I have learned
There is no way I can earn
His mercy
Or His grace

One more thing I have learned
It’s that I do not deserve
The glory
Or the praise 

It’s all Jesus
It’s the price that He paid
On the cross
It’s all Jesus
It’s the blood that He gave
Just for us

If there’s one thing I must do
It’s to lift my voice to you
My Savior
And my Lord

And give you praise
Give you glory
Give you honor
All my days

It’s all Jesus
It’s the price that He paid
On the cross
It’s all Jesus
It’s the blood that He gave
Just for us
