E ternal God, earthen clay, what stripped away your glory? Was it

M easureless mercy, in the virgin womb, born this wondrous way?

M ary, Mary don't you see what the heavenly Father sees?

A n earthen vessel filled with love, poured out again for me.

N ursed in your arms, held close to your heart, sleeps the spotless Lamb;

U ltimate sacrifice, what child is this, born to die on a tree? Oh, but

E xalt him this night, with the angelic host, lift up your voices in praise.

L isten! Across the hills it explodes, "peace, good will toward all men."



G loria, gloria in excelsis Deo! God's Light, eternal flame, is born.

O come all ye faithful, come see where he lies, on a bed of musty hay,

D eep in sleep, dreaming of you and I. Behold the mystery. Make haste!



I n the city of David you will find your God. Go! Seek the Father's

S igns. Kingly robe of swaddling clothes; a manger his wooden throne.



W isemen start their westward journey guided by the brilliant star, while

I n the frosty fields, not far away, lowly shepherds drive their flocks.

T housands will come to bow at his feet, with millions more to follow.

H osannas will ring and lifted voices will sing, throughout the endless ages.



U nto us this night a child is born, hallelujah! Joy to the world!

S alvation's hope, the first Christmas gift, wrapped for all mankind.







If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
