God Made Low

God Made Low
Music and words by Jason Hansen and Bob Kauflin. © 2014 Sovereign Grace Praise. CCLI Song #7031872

Prophets promised long ago
A King would come to bring us hope
And now a virgin bears a son
The time to save the world has come

Humble shepherds run in haste
To see the One the angels praised
In cattle stall they find a girl
Who holds the hope of all the world

CHORUS
Emmanuel has come to us
The Christ is born, Hallelujah!
Our God made low to raise us up
Emmanuel, has come to us

As He sleeps upon the hay
He holds the moon and stars in place
Though born an infant He remains
The sovereign God of endless days

For all our sins one day He’ll die
To make us sons of God on high
Let every heart prepare Him room
The promises have all come true

Angels From the Realms of Glory

Angels From the Realms of Glory
Public Domain. Words: James Montgomery, 1816. Music: Henry Smart 1867.

Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth.

CHORUS:
Come and worship, come and worship,
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing;
Yonder shines the Savior’s light
(Chorus)

BRIDGE:
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
You are the God who saves us
Worthy of all our praises
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Come have your way among us
We welcome you here, Lord Jesus

Sinners, wrung with true repentance,
Bent beneath your guilt and shame,
Justice comes to pay the sentence,
Mercy comes to break your chains!
(Chorus)

He Shall Reign Forevermore

He Shall Reign Forevermore
©2015 Sixsteps Songs. Words & Music: Chris Tomlin & Matt Maher. CCLI Song #7050416

In the bleak mid-winter,
All creation groans,
For a world in darkness,
Frozen like a stone,
Light is breaking,
In a stable for a throne

CHORUS:
He shall reign forevermore, forevermore,
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore,
Unto us a Child is born,
The King of kings and Lord of lords,
And He shall reign forevermore, forevermore

If I were a wise man,
I would travel far,
If I were a shepherd,
I would do my part,
But poor as I am,
I will give to Him my heart

BRIDGE:
Here within a manger lies
the One Who made the starry skies,
This baby born for sacrifice,
Christ the Messiah!
Into our hopes, into our fears,
The Savior of the world appears,
The promise of eternal years,
Christ the Messiah!

Newborn King

Newborn King
Words & Music: Jeff Pardo & Brian Brown CCLI Song #6365899

We’ve been waiting, our hearts hoping,
For a Savior for our Lord,
Now this day in flesh appearing,
Love is here we wait no more

CHORUS:
Light of the world, come to save, come to save us
Heaven rejoices, angels sing,
Glory to God in the high, in the highest
We bow before our newborn King

Peace on earth and death defeated,
Mercy triumphs, grace abounds,
Through this Child we find forgiveness
Our salvation, here and now

BRIDGE:
Hallelujah! Christ our Savior,
Hallelujah! We will sing,
Hallelujah! Christ our Savior,
Son of God, our newborn King

Isaiah 11

Isaiah 11
©2015 Flo Paris Music, Velveteen Songs & Drink Your Tea. Written by Flo Paris Oakes, Katy Bowser & Sandra McCracken (Rain for Roots)

A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse,
The roots will grow a budding branch,
A wolf will dwell with a gentle lamb,
They’ll leap and play in the green, green grass

A little child will lead them,
A little child will lead them,
The lion and the lamb lie down together,
A little child will lead them

A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse
The roots will grow a budding branch
A wolf will dwell with a gentle lamb
They’ll leap and play in the green, green grass

A little child will lead them,
A little child will lead them,
The lion and the lamb lie down together,
A little child will lead them

On that day, the Root of Jesse will be raised high
Standing as banner for the people,
The nations will all come to him
And his dwelling place will be glorious! (Isaiah 11:10)

A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse,
A banner of love like a melody,
Singing, “Come back children, come back, hurry”
Singing over you, singing over me

The good, good King will lead us
The good, good King will lead us
The spirit of the Lord will rest upon Him,
The good, good King will lead us,
The good, good King will lead us,
The lion and the lamb lie down together,
The good, good King will lead us.

For you, O Lord, our souls in stillness wait,
Truly our hope is in You,

We Three Kings/Tidings Of Comfort

We Three Kings/Tidings Of Comfort

We three kings of Orient are,
Bearing gifts we travel afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

CHORUS:
O—Star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect Light.

Gold we bear, proclaiming Him King,
Frankincense, His worship we sing,
Myrrh’s perfume heralds death and tomb,
Our gifts to His feet we bring
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
O, tidings of comfort and joy!
Comfort and joy!
O, tidings of comfort and joy!
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel has come to thee, O Israel

It’s True

It’s True
Words & Music by Sara Groves, 2008. ©2008 Sara Groves Music. CCLI Song #5400102

In your heart you hope it’s true
Though you hold no expectation,
In the deepest part of you
There’s an open hesitation

CHORUS:
But it’s true!
Kingdoms and crowns,
The God Who came down to find you,
It’s true!
Angels on high
Sing through the night,
Alleluia!

You’ve heard it told, you think it’s odd,
The whole thing fraught with complication,
The play begins with a baby God,
And all His blessed implications
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

(CHORUS)

In your heart, you hope it’s true
In the deepest part of you

O Come O Come Emmanuel | He Shall Reign

O Come O Come Emmanuel | He Shall Reign

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Drive away the shades of night,
Pierce the clouds and bring us light

O come, O come, Thou Rod of Jesse free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict’ry o’er the grave.

O come, O come, Emmanuel!
O come, O come, Emmanuel!
Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice!
Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice!

Come broken, come captive,
Come all you who mourn,
Oh groaning creation, rejoice!
A Child, a Savior,
Our healing He brings,
What freedom, what consolation!

He shall reign,
He shall reign,
He shall reign,
He shall reign!

O Come All Ye Faithful | Hark | Gloria

O come all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant
Come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of angels

CHORUS:
O come let us adore Him,
Oh come let us adore Him,
Oh, come let us adore Him,

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing
(Chorus)

Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild,

Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
