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

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

Come and See

Hurry up
Come and see
The baby in the hay
They say He’s the Messiah
Born this simple way

Hurry up
Come and see
The star shine up above
It lights the way for all to come
And see His smile of love

Come and see the wonder
Come and see Messiah
Lying in a manger
Came to save the world

Hurry up
Come and see
The shepherds worship Him
Angels came to beckon them
Salvation He would bring

Come and see the wonder
Come and see Messiah
Lying in a manger
Came to save the world

His mother smiles
His father grins
They know the promise
Made to them
They hold it deep
Within their hearts
They know His life
Will be so hard

Come and see the wonder
Come and see Messiah
Lying in a manger
Came to save the world

Came to give His life
Came to save the world
Became a sacrifice
Because He loved this world
