KING OF THE WORLD

Becca Mizell, Natalie Grant, Samuel Mizell 

I try to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I've designed
I try to pull you down, so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead?
Still, I run ahead and think I'm strong enough
When you're the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

Oh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to me
And you're holding on to me

When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the King of the world
How could I make you so small
When You're the one who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the world?

IN CHRIST ALONE

Stuart Townend & Keith Getty

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

IT'S BEEN A LONG JOURNEY

Each day that I live, He gives more than I need
And I could never describe His goodness to me
If you ask how I make it day after day
There is only one thing I can say

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

All that I need I find at His feet
When I'm hungry, He feeds me with manna so sweet
When my soul is weary, He sends peace and rest
And all I can say is I'm blessed

Now I've had my share of sunshine and rain
Days filled with laughter and nights filled with pain
But with every mile as I travel this way
The journey gets sweeter each day

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

I'M BLESSED
So much more than I ever deserve
I'M BLESSED
He's been faithfully keeping His word
I'M BLESSED
I've been cleansed by the hand of the Lord
I'm blessed, I'm blessed, I'm blessed

It's been a long journey but I have been blessed
Walking with Jesus, I have no regrets
He is so good to me, and I must confess
The way has been long, but I'm blessed

IN IT AFTER ALL

Author?

So You were in it, after all
All of those moments I spent crying
When something inside of me was dying
I didn't know that You heard me
Each time I called
You had a reason for those trials
It seems I grew stronger every mile
Now I know You were in it, after all

We're always ready, Lord, to take the glory
But we're seldom willing to endure the pain
You were with me when the sun was shining,
And You were still beside me when it rained

So You were in it, after all
Taking the blows that I'd been given
Mending the wounds that needed mending
I didn't know that You heard me each time I called
I guess it's easy now to see it,
I don't know how I could have missed it, Jesus.
But You were in it, after all

IN YOUR CARE

Mark R. Harris and Billy Simon

Sleep, Mary, sleep; I will be there soon
Entering earth through your precious womb
My child, oh, My mother of earth
Give Me the gift of birth
Sleep, Joseph, sleep; may you dream of love
And peace to the earth through your newborn Son
Oh, raise Me with honor and pride
I will stand by your side

And I'll be in your care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow Me close
But always remember, please be aware
I will be in your care

Now, Israel, oh My chosen one
The prophets foretold that this day would come
I pray you will know I'm your King
Salvation is what I bring

And I'll be in your care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow Me close
But always remember, please be aware
I will be in your care

Care for Me and shelter Me in childhood
Knowing that someday I'll have to go
And though it may seem hopeless,
When I'm hanging on the tree
You can know for certain I'll return
But, until then oh, oh. . .

You'll be in My care
Safely harbored there
My heavenly host will follow you close
But always remember, please be aware
You will be in My care

NEW STAR SHINING

Johanna Hall and John Hall

They didn't own a house
No crib, no toys were waiting
Still, they had their love
For the child they were anticipating.
He was born one winter night
In a town called Bethlehem
They wrapped Him up so warm and tight
And said, "It looks like heaven's come down."

There was a new star shining in the sky up above
By His light that winter night, they found peace and perfect love
If we want to find it, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still.

They worried how to feed Him.
Simple trade was all they knew
It was hard enough to make ends meet
When there were only two.
But the cold, the dark, and hunger,
Couldn't take away their joy
And they knew that they would find a way
For that precious baby boy.

There was a new star shining in the sky up above
By His light that winter night, they found peace and perfect love
If we want to find it, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still.

If we want to find Him, I know we always will
'Cause that new star is shining for us still...

HALLELUJAH

Leonard Cohen

I've heard about this baby boy
Who's come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath, I'm singing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God's only Son was born,
Oh, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You'll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

A star shone bright up in the east T
o Bethlehem, the wise men three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN

Author Unknown

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed angel came;
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

"Fear not then," said the angel,
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The Son of God to find.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

HOW MANY KINGS

Marc Martel and Jason Germain

Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe, after all we've projected,
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's shawl
Just a child; Is this who we've waited for?

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe.
Gold for his honor, and frankincense for his pleasure
And myrrh for the cross he will suffer
Do you believe? Is this who we've waited for?

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

All for me
All for you
All for me
All for you

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods traveled so far
To save a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

A STRANGE WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD

Dave Clark, Mark Harris, Don Koch

I'm sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel
Come to life, and Joseph said

Why me, I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him, with all the rulers of the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way to save the world

To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth
But, Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought

Why me, I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him, with all the rulers of the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way to save the world

A LITTLE PEACE ON EARTH

Twila LaBar, Joel Lindsey 

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth
And don't it seem like lately this old world is going wild
And we could all sure use a taste of mercy mild
So I'm praying for all it's worth for a little peace on earth

It's hard to imagine a silent night
In a busy world that never seems to sleep
But when I close my eyes and think of Bethlehem's Child
Then I realize just what we really need

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth
And don't it seem like lately this old world is going wild
And we could all sure use a taste of mercy mild
So I'm praying for all it's worth for a little peace on earth

I hear a church bell ringing in the distance
And faith wells up in me like a child
I bow my head and ask the Lord, "This Christmas
Could you help us get along for just awhile?"

Lately I've been praying for a little peace on earth
The kind the angels sang about the starry night of Jesus' birth
And don't it seem like lately this old world is going wild

MARY, DID YOU KNOW?

Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you've kissed the face of God?
Mary, did you know?

The blind will see. The deaf will hear. The dead will live again.
The lame will leap. The dumb will speak the praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the great "I AM"

GOD IS WITH US

Wayne Kirkpatrick

The skies don't seem to be as dark as usual
The stars seem brighter than they've been before
Deep within I feel my soul a stirring
As though my hope has been restored
The shepherds say they've heard the voice of angels
Confirming rumors spread across the land
That a child protected well from Herod's anger
Is our Father's Son, and the Son of Man

Love is raining down on the world tonight
There's a presence here I can tell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel
He's the Savior we have been praying for
In our humble hearts He will dwell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel

I feel compelled to tell all who will listen
That peace on earth is not so out of reach
If we can find grace, mercy and forgiveness
He has come to save, He is all of these

Love is raining down on the world tonight
There's a presence here I can tell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel
He's the Savior we have been praying for
In our humble hearts He will dwell
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel

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

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

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.
