ON THE EVE OF A MIRACLE … Christmas Song Lyrics

golden star

On the eve of a miracle
When hopelessness cried silently
The people’s hearts, they were breaking
Waiting for promised liberty

So many years had passed them by
Each Mother, Father shared the news
But life grew harder, tears fell too
Where is He, the King of the Jews

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

Then pure love shone forth one dark night
Salvation wrapped in perfection
He appeared; but they didn’t know
He was sent for adoration

Oh! Little Babe of Bethlehem
They desired to seek Your sweet face
Forgive them not recognizing
Heaven’s gift of mercy and grace

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

When eyes were shut, they couldn’t see
Or know what they were waiting for
Open eyes Lord, that we may see
The promises You have in store

And so it is, for us today
Longing for light in the dark night
And longing for needs to be met
Body, soul and spirit tonight

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day
Yes, He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

THAT HOLY NIGHT (Some More Christmas Song Lyrics)

Shepherd with Sheep

Let us be joyous
Come let us see
All that our Saviour
Promised to be

He came to give us beautiful sight
New melodies to sing
He opened doors that held us captive
And now sweet gifts we bring
And now sweet gifts we bring

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The angels, Love adored
Love adored, Love adored
The angels, Love adored

Oh! Come let us praise
Heaven’s delight
Hymns of thanksgiving
Sing Holy Night

That holy night, so perfectly timed
The stars reflected love
Yes, Jesus was born, Immanuel
Immanuel means love
Immanuel means love

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The Father’s love, restored
Love restored, love restored
The Father’s love, restored

’Twas the night
That holy night

A CHRISTMAS MELODY (Song Lyrics)

christmas background sparkling decorated fir tree sketch

Have you ever stopped to wonder
This divine love, so pure in heart
Heaven-sent above asunder
Flowing from life, so torn apart

Pouring forth sweet adoration
Angels announce this mystery
A birth, Father’s jubilation
Knowing man could now be made free

Found in lowly manger’s holding
Bringing His way and truth and life
Causing hearts to break forth singing
Delivering from sin and strife

Oh what joy, the birth of Christ is
To all becoming sons of God
We lift praise to all that is His
All brought forth out of Jesse’s rod

Emmanuel, everlasting
From eternity past, You came
Oh! Fill us to overflowing
We’ll overcome, You overcame

Fill us with Holy Spirit love
Joy and peace and longsuffering
Gentleness, goodness, wings of dove
Faith, meekness, self-control leading

So think upon this priceless gift
This season of entwining hearts
May healing balm bind every rift
Salvation come, as He imparts

IN THE STABLE OF MY HEART (Song Lyrics)

christmas baby boy

Oh Jesus
You’ve found a place
In the stable of my heart
You came in the darkness
And I, I didn’t turn You away

Oh Jesus
Sweet Babe of God
You lay Your life out for mine
Oh how I love You Lord
I lift my hands, praise Your holy name

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

Oh Jesus
You’ve filled this heart
This cold, and this emptiness
Flooded it with heaven
And traded it for love, peace and joy

Oh Jesus
I hope and pray
That many will come to You
Be saved, and healed today
And all darkness will be washed away

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

My Father
You sent sweet hope
Into the world’s hopelessness
Oh may my heart reveal
My love, and eternal thankfulness

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

trees in the snow painting

It’s cold outside
The fire is burning brightly
The robins huddle close
The candles flicker so
My heart, it is awarming
To the season’s gift of love
It’s cold outside
Soft snow falls from above

It’s cold outside
Carollers sing so sweetly
Light fragrance dusts the rose
Now how does that song go?
My countenance is smiling
Friend, to you I give my love
It’s cold outside
Love sprinkled from above

It’s cold outside
This season ends completely
Sparkling tinder, it glows
Melting the cold, I know
I hear the lambs ableating
The Shepherd’s eyes of pure love
It’s cold outside
Bring healing from above

It’s cold outside
Heaven’s stars twinkle lightly
Shine hope on mankind’s woes
White glitters through the snow
My voice joins in the singing
Melodious notes of love
It’s cold outside
Life given from above

HEAR THE BABE (Christmas Song Lyrics)

christmas nativity scene

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

As Mary sings her lullaby, creation watches on
Born in lowly manger, majesty in one so young

Watching tenderly over Him, she wipes away the tear
A tear reflecting hope, reflection of brightest star

My dearest son, I love you so, many will follow you
But many won’t believe, that truth will lead them through

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

The bed upon which you do lay, will bring them to their knees
From ages to ages, each life will one day see

You cannot express your love yet; yet love is not hidden
Waiting for you Jesus, praise God, eyes have beholden

Rest up, sweet one, take your slumber, the time will surely come
When all humanity, will go, or with you, be one

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

A Beautiful Story

I have decided to post some of my earlier work. I hope you enjoy them.

spring snowdrop

Softly as a pure, white dove
The snowflakes gently fell
A little lamb was given us
On that crisp, winter morn

And as He grew, new life was found
Found deep within the earth
Petals beautifully did spring forth
And not a blemish spoiled

Fresh sounds of song rolled off the leaves
Of fragrance laced with heaven
And that dear lamb, God’s chosen One
Was led toward that tree

The tree of death, the tree of life
And today this is given thee
To die with Christ, be born again
Never again be led astray

The wondrous Shepherd of mankind
With grace whispers your name
Come forth, come forth
From darkness holding, life begins with Me

Take My hand and walk beside Me
Bring your heart to pastures green
Living waters will cleanse, restore you
Open the gate that is nailed with My pain
Your shame is taken
My love is given
Silent knocking on your heart no more
