Extraordinary Day

 It’s not ordinary at all
 What happened that day
 When heaven came down
 In a manger to lay
  
 Angels came singing
 To shepherds alone
 Kings came from far
 As the brightest star shone
  
 Mother and father
 Had traveled so far
 To find the inn full
 Underneath that star
  
 Bet both of them knew
 That this special day
 The Savior was born
 To take sin away
  
 Yet the kept quiet
 About their sons fate
 He didn’t come too soon
 And He was not late
  
 The time was just right
 And today we see
 That Jesus redeems
 Both you and me
  
 Let’s never forget
 That extraordinary day
 When heaven came down
 And in a manger lay 

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 

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 

This Heavenly Place

I’ve lived a little less than seventy years
Sometimes in joy and sometimes in tears
Sometimes I’ve cried and sometimes I’ve cheered
I’ve sure had my ups and downs
 
But all of those years are nothing at all
To the future I’ll have in heavens great halls
Where I’ll eternally answer that heavenly call
To bow down and worship the Lamb
 
I’ll join with the elders around His throne
And all of those numbered as one of His own
Who they all are I truly don’t know
In that day I will dance with them all
 
My mouth will I open my voice will I raise
In a thunderous ovation of heavenly praise
As I worship the mighty magnificent name
Of Jesus Christ my Lord
 
Jesus, my Jesus I love you so much
Jesus, my Jesus I’m glad that you touched me
Jesus, my Jesus I lift up my praise
To your magnificent name
I am with you today
In this heavenly place
What a Savior you are to me

I Had Been Good

I wandered aimlessly about
Not knowing I was wrong 
Thinking all the while
That God would go along 
 
He didn't mind my sin
He really understood 
After all most of my life
I really had been good 
 
Then i heard that Jesus 
Was God's only true Son
I learned He died for me
So my sins would be gone 
 
He took all my transgression 
He nailed it to that cross
'Twas then I realized 
What my sin truly cost
 
I asked Him to forgive me
To wash my sins away
I told Him I would make Him Lord 
I'd serve Him every fay
 
Now I am bound for heaven
I pray that you are too
Make Jesus Christ your Lord today 
His love will pardon you

Now Him I Know

I walked into the nursing home that day knowing very soon I would leave in tears
I was here to visit a dear old friend who was slowly losing his mind
And I was with his wife of over 50 years
 
As we walked into his room I saw his children there three boys and one lovely daughter
They were standing by his chair; the girl was sitting down,
And they were sharing in a little bit of laughter
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
His wife walked up beside the bed and smiled and he returned a look of wonder and a sigh
She said “How are you today my dear.  I’ve missed you oh so much”
And she reached out and gave a gentle touch
 
The old man looked bewildered she was there.  He said “Do I know you?  Why do you care?”
As she held back the tears, she said “I am your wife,
And we’ve been together nearly all our lives”
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
She turned to leave the room, but they looked back to her life’s love
And she uttered one more thing before she left the room
“Jesus Loves You, this I know” were the final words she said
And the old man’s eyes got big and he lifted up his head
 
 
 
“Now Him I know!  He’s the Savior of my soul!
I gave my life to him so many years ago.”
His wife came running up, and with a hug she kissed his cheek
She said “Soon you will see him, and you’ll walk on golden streets”
 
Yes, Him I know!  He’s the one who makes me whole
I will walk with Him in heaven, walk on streets of gold
And even though I don’t know much down here on earth below
Quite soon I’ll be in heaven because – Him I know!
 
Many of us know a lot of people.  We may know business owners who can help us figure out what product will best suit our needs.  We may know plumbers who can come in a fix a clogged drain or hook up a new sink.  We may know the mailman who faithfully delivers the mail every day.  We may know electricians, and pastors and politicians and many other people who can help us get through life.  We may have a bevy of friends who can come to our aid in times of trouble.  It’s good to know a lot of people!
 
But there is only one that  matters/  Knowing Jesus as my personal Savior is the only way to get to Heaven. He said He is the way and that no one goes to the Father except through Him.  We must know Jesus!  Do you know Jesus today.  If not, ask Him to forgive you of your sins.  Make Him Lord of your life today.  It is a decision you will never regret. I pray everyone who reads this knows Jesus!
 
 
 
 
Praise and Worship

I Magnify Your Name

I come before your throne
You are God and God alone
Lifted high in majesty
Your love surrounding me
Over everything I’ve got
You are the only one
Who comforts me
Who sets me free
 
I will lift my hands in praise to you
I will lift my voice to worship you
Lifted high
I magnify your name
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

This Is My Lord

A light into the darkness
A shelter from the storm
A river in the desert
This is my Lord

A healer to the hurting
A comfort when I mourn
A hope for all the hopeless
This is my Lord

A way when there is no way
A still small voice to warn
A peace in time of trouble
This is my Lord

A shaper of my future
A mender when I’m torn
A teacher of the righteous
This is my Lord

A friend when I am lonely
A truth when I am scorned
A rock and firm foundation
This is my Lord

A thousand years from now
He is who I’ll adore
My Savior and redeemer
This is my Lord

Worship Him Alone

Holy is the Lord
Seated on the throne
Clothed in royal majesty
Worship Him alone

Holy is the Lamb
Worshiped and adored
Let His name be magnified
Jesus Christ my Lord

Jesus, my Lord
Jesus, my Lord
I lift my hands up to the sky
I lift my voice to magnify
Your name is worthy of my praise
Jesus Christ my Lord

All I want to do is praise Him. From the mornings dawn to the setting sun, I lift my hands in praise. As I gaze up at the wonders in the glorious stars, I can’t help but stand in awe of His creation. I lift my voice to magnify His name, His wondrous name. he is not seated on His throne in heaven. He paid the price for my sin and has been raised by His Father, who loved Him. His Father sent Him to show how much he loved each one of us. He loves all of us so much. He loves you more than you can imagine. He loves me more than I can fathom. That is why I praise Him. That is why I glorify His name. That is why I sing this song today, and each song He gives me every day. Because He is worthy of my praise. Not because He provides for me, protects me, delivers me, saves me and does so much for me. I praise Him simply because he is worthy.

Psalm 8:9
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
