IT'S STILL THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD

Gloria Gaither, William J. Gaither, J.D. Miller

A woman and an angel, a promise and a song.
A word too grand for any mind to hold.
A tax law and a journey, a stable and some straw.
These tell the greatest story ever told.

Oh, sing glory in the highest,
He is come--our great Messiah.
Come bow before this awesome mystery.
Mighty God and fragile baby,
Here a lowly manger holds.
And it's still the greatest story ever told.

A hillside and some shepherds, a blaze of blinding light.
Angels singing carols in the cold.
Eternal revelation to men as dull as stone.
The glorious, greatest story ever told.

Oh, sing glory in the highest,
He is come--our great Messiah.
Come bow before this awesome mystery.
Mighty God and fragile baby,
Here a lowly manger holds.
And it's still the greatest story ever told.

MARY KNEW

Gina Vera

An angel of the Lord went out for visitation
Mary's willing heart was this angel's destination
He spoke of One who would be born and reign as King and Lord
Overshadowed by the truth, Mary knew
Everyone could question her story's validation
Mary's news did not bring a joyous celebration
Even Joseph could not understand that this was Heaven's Lamb
But a manger held the truth, Mary knew

Mary knew Him at His best, and she knew Him at His worst
She understood the man in Him but knew that God came first
So she held her little promise, and she watched Him as He grew
And her faith never waivered from the truth; Mary knew

She followed all the way to the top of the great hill
Mary watched in silent pain the Father's plan fulfilled
And at His feet, she knelt that day as tears ran down her face
For the cross now held the truth, Mary knew
At the place where they had laid her baby down to sleep,
An angel told the story of what she had believed
She saw the stone was rolled away; it was just an empty grave
The tomb revealed the truth, Mary knew

Mary knew Him at His best, and she knew Him at His worst
She understood the man in Him but knew that God came first
So she held her little promise, and she watched Him as He grew
And her faith never waivered from the truth; Mary knew

IT'S ABOUT THE CROSS

Jamison J. Statema

It's not just about the manger
Where the baby lay
It's not all about the angels
Who sang for him that day
It's not just about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It's not all about the wise men
Who traveled from afar

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

It's not just about the presents
Underneath the tree
It's not all about the feeling
That the season brings to me
It's not just about coming home
To be with those you love
It's not all about the beauty
In the snow I'm dreaming of

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

The beginning of the story is wonderful and great
But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree
It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been me
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

Chris Rice 

Tears are falling; hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised; we've been waiting
Welcome, Holy Child
Welcome, Holy Child

Hope that You don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home

Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile fingers sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorns
Tiny heart Whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around you
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

SEND THE RAIN

Aaron Butler

I'm tired of just the same old thing
Of tradition wearing out your name
I'm tired of a man-made worship hour
I'm tired
I'm tired of a song without any praise
Where worshiping You is out of place
I'm tired of religious formality
I'm tired

Send the rain
Send the fire
Send the wind
Send the Holy Ghost in power
Send the rain

We're ready for revival, Lord
We're ready to walk through the door
We're ready, Lord, oh, let it pour
We're ready, Lord
We're ready, Lord, enough is enough
We're ready, Lord, to drink from your cup
We're ready, oh, fill us up
We're ready, Lord.

Send the rain
Send the fire
Send the wind
Send the Holy Ghost in power
Send the rain

THIS IS THE DAY

Nancy Harmon

This is the day that the Lord hath made
I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad
I will lift up mine eyes to which cometh my help
What cometh from the Lord
Great God Almighty never, never fails

I can’t help but tell what He’s done for me
How He lifted my soul and gave me the victory
Set my footsteps a’ walkin’ right
Gave me eyes to see the light
This is the day that the Lord hath made

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
This is the day that the Lord hath made

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
Let the earth and all creation
Every tribe and every nation
Sing a song of adoration
It’s the day of celebration
This is the day that the Lord hath made; He hath made

I’m gonna keep on singin’;
I’m gonna keep on shoutin’
I’m gonna keep on liftin’ my voice
And let the world know that Jesus saves
I’m gonna keep on singin’;
I’m gonna keep on shoutin’
I’m gonna keep on liftin’ my voice
And let the world know that this is the day
That the Lord hath made
I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad
I will lift up mine eyes to which cometh my help
What cometh from the Lord
Great God Almighty never, never fails; never fails

Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
Let the Heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad
Let the hills sing forth, let the sea roll back
This is the day that the Lord hath made

HE'S A GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD

Author?

He took a space so dark and void with not one sign of life.
In six short days, He simply spoke and the whole world came alive,
Every time I breathe the air, He gives a smell of sweet red rose,
He's a God of wonder, I'm overwhelmed at all my eyes behold!

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!

What joy to know about His pow'r and all His wondrous works,
God's glory leaps right from the pages when I read His Word.
His testimony testifies He is the Lord of all,
And I realize, just one more time, He's a Great and Mighty God!

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!

A mighty fortress is our God,
A bulwark never failing;
Our helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing.

What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
He's the only one who's worthy of Glory, Honor, Praise and Blessing!
He's the Great I Am, The Lion, The Lamb, He is the King of Kings!
What a Great and Mighty, Powerful, Awesome, Wonderful God is He!
