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

The Reason

Bells and lights and bows of holly

Certainly can lead to folly

If we take our eyes of why there here

At Christmas time we celebrate

With food and drink and parties late

The reason for the season isn’t clear

 

So lets review the story

How Jesus came from glory

To become a sacrifice for all our sin

This baby in the manger

Saved  me from timeless danger

And gave me peace and joy within

 

So in this Christmas season

Let’s not forget the reason

We celebrate December 25th

It’s not for winter folly

Or a fat man who is jolly

But a Savior in a manger at His birth

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Folly

What A Night

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

Mary and Joseph travelled oh so many miles

They awaited the birth of their first child

Looking for a room at the inn

There was no room for them within

A stable would be there room for the night

 

The shepherds were startled by an Angelic light

Do not be afraid echoed through the night

I bring good tidings of Joy

Peace on earth for girls and boys

And a host of Angels Loud Hosannas sing

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

  1. See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

They came with their flocks to find that babe

Wrapped in some clothes and laid in the hay

They knelt down to worship Him

Assured He’s the coming King

Then for a while they would worship and stay

 

Mary and Joseph knew their child was special

They’d both been told of His coming arrival

But they held their peace

When the shepherds did speak

And asked why they were summoned by angels

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

The wise men arrived from the east they had come

They knew that the star was a sign from above

Their gifts they did bear

Gold, incense and myrrh

They knelt down to worship this child filled with love

 

Thus, the scene was set

No one would forget

That the Son of God came as a babe

And for many years

Mary shed her tears

For she knew what a price he would pay

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

Freedom Within

My Mom had taught Jesus to me

In the church since I was just three

But as I grew old

I got kind of bold

He became a condunrum to me

 

But then in a moment I found

That Jesus was my solid ground

He died for my sin

Gave me freedom within

 

The conundrum is no longer sound

 

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Conundrum

All Because of Christmas

I walk through the city and see the lights

Red, green and blue, they shine so bright

Each house is lit up in the night

All because of Christmas

 

Merchants are smiling as people pay

For merchandise they bought that day

They smile as people shop and play

All because of Christmas

 

Churches are bustling with holiday fare

Candies and cookies abundant are there

The choirs are singing their songs of cheer

All because of Christmas

 

Families will gather from miles away

Have not been together for many a day

They get along fine and then go their way

All because of Christmas

 

But Christmas is more than shopping and food

More than the lights or family viewed

Christmas is when a baby was born

A long, long time ago

 

He was born in a stable that Holy night

Above shone a star of incredible light

Angels announced His birth that day

A long, long time ago

 

He did not come a good life to live

He came to die and to pardon our sin

Now we are free from guilt and shame

And live forever with Him

 

This Christmas you can enjoy the lights

The food and the family and presents all right

But please don’t forget that babe long ago

Who gave His life just for you

HiStory

The story is told
How a long time ago
The God of creation
Looked down below
And said “Son, it is time
For you to bestow
Our mercy an 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
Shephards 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 mine 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

 

Glory To God

In the quiet of night they waited

For the breaking of the day

The long night was cold and lonely

As they tended the sheep in their care

 

The stars were brilliant above them

A cloudless sky gave them a view

The campfire was warming their bodies

As the mist settled down as a dew

 

Then suddenly up in the heavens

A bright light appeared to their sight

And the form of an angel was seen next

The shepherds leaned back in their fright

 

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man

 

“Do not be afraid” said the angel

“I come to bring news of good cheer”

For a child is born in a manger.

Bringing great joy to all who will hear”

 

You will find the babe laid in a manger

With swaddling clothes keeping him warm

Go to Bethlehem and greet the Savior

Who will be the Lord of this world”

 

And suddenly great light was shining

A great heavenly host filled the air

Singing “Glory to God in the highest

Peace on earth and good will to man”

 

Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man 
It’d easy to get to distracted 

By presents and food and good times

Let’s purpose to stop what we’re doing

And tell of His story of life
This season should be about mercy

And what He has done for us 

He took our sun to the cross 

And showered His love upon us 
This season we celebrate Christmas 

And the birth of our Savior and Lord 

Let’s take a few moments to worship

And sing of the one we adore
Glory to God, glory to God

Glory to God in the Highest

Peace and good will, peace and good will

Peace and good will to man
