It’s nothing like I knew before, and it’s all I need to know.

Every now and then, posting some song lyrics is all that’s needed to best convey what’s needed to be said. Here are my top 3 favorite Christmas songs. The first is a heartfelt cry to Jesus, reflecting over the past year. The second is a worshipful song from the shepherds’ perspective at the nativity scene. The third and final song is an upbeat piece, celebrating that we have a King to save us! Enjoy and Merry Christmas ūüôā
“I Celebrate the Day” by Relient K
And with this Christmas wish is missed the point I could convey.¬†If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You’ve touched my life;¬†Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same place as New Year’s eve, and from a lack of my persistency we’re less than half as close as I want to be.And the first time that You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior?¬†And the first breath that left Your lips, did You know that it would change this world forever?And so this Christmas I’ll compare the things I felt in prior years to what this midnight made so clear: that You have come to meet me here.

To look back and think that this baby would one day save me, in the hope that what You did –¬†That you were born so I might live.¬†To look back and think that this baby would one day save me…

And I, I celebrate the day that You were born to die so I could one day pray for You to save my life.

“Adoration” by the Newsboys
I’m here with the others who saw the heavens testify.¬†Now I hang back in the shadows –¬†I want to come close,¬†I want to know.¬†She sees me shivering here, she smiles and with a nod¬†I walk through the mud and straw to the newborn Son of God.He raises a wrinkled hand through the dust and the flies.¬†Wrapped in rags like we are and with barely open eyes¬†He takes my finger, and He won’t let go – and He won’t let go.¬†It’s nothing like I knew before, and it’s all I need to know.Come, let us adore Him!¬†He has come down to the world we live in!¬†And all I have to give Him is adoration.

God is with us here! Our Immanuel! God is with us here! Our Immanuel!

O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him!

Jesus, our Immanuel is with us here and He won’t let go.
“Born is the King” by Hillsong –¬†Music¬†Video

So lift up your voice and sing out His praise!¬†It’s Christmas!¬†Born is the King, rejoice in the day!¬†It’s Christmas!¬†Make a joyful sound!¬†It’s Christmas!¬†Let His praise resound!¬†It’s Christmas!
