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

CHRISTMAS JOY IS HERE TO STAY (A Song of Promise)

christmas tree 05 vector

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your fireplace
As you smile at the presents
But don’t feel His presence the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A small place in your heart
As you sing of His sweet Name
A sweet Name not heard through the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your table
As you feed on too many things
And avoid heavenly Bread the rest of the year?

Bridge
Oh! He will always be here
The Tree of Life He offers you
The Light of heaven will ever shine forth
The Joy of heaven fills each day anew

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay
