Oh what wonder, what delight
to see the baby born that night.
In a humble stable far away
Angels were singing and shouting hooray!
Heaven came to earth for us
but not with all the normal fuss
that should accompany a King
No, He came without a robe or ring.
He came with nothing but His Name –
that Name which is above all names.
JESUS, our Emmanuel
of God’s great Love He came to tell.
Sent to save us, all were lost.
But what a price, oh what a cost.
Stripped and beaten, nailed to a tree
He died for us in agony.
He gladly died so we could live
Taught us to love and to forgive,
to keep our hearts open wide
and walk with Him side by side.
Ponder all that’s pure and true
Don’t let the world cloud your view.
See His face, it’s everywhere
He lives within each person here.
He sends us to the least and lost
Now each of us must count the cost.
Can we do all that we’re able
share the bread upon our table?
That’s the beauty of His story
– as we wait to see His glory.
Each of us can share His love
and help to make His Kingdom come.
It’s not always easy but we’ll be so glad
when we finally get to meet our Dad.
Jesus, Mary, and Spirit too
An awesome treasure awaits me and you!
So wake up now, don’t miss your call
For God won’t rest until we all
are safely home as we should be –
with Him for all eternity.
