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

SNOW’S A-FALLING, CAN YOU HEAR IT CALLING? … CHRISTMAS SONG LYRICS

merry christmas in red

Look out the window
Oh! My dear sweet child
The snow’s a-falling
Singing come outside

Look out the window
The sky may be grey
Just rug up, be warm
And come out to play

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall, right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall, right where you’re standing

Find coat and mittens
And your bright red shoes
It’s winter playtime
Let the snow amuse

Catch little snowflakes
Catch them, and you’ll see
Cold, cold and softness
Christmas love, so free

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing

You’ve built a snowman
And a snow angel
Giggled and jumped high
But now feel a chill

Look in the window
The fire’s a-warming
Sweet Christmassy treats
They’re now a-calling

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing

IT’S CHRISTMASTIME … Christmas Song Lyrics and/or Prayer

Nativity Scene with Shepherds and Wisemen

Dear heavenly Father
How can we ever express how much we love You
How much we love Your only begotten Son, Jesus
Your love surrounds us
Your love indwells us
Your creation amazes us
And Holy Spirit enables us to love You

It’s Christmastime, dear heavenly Father
It’s not snowing here; but I know it is elsewhere
And robins, and squirrels, and the sweet baby deer
Fly and scamper and wander
To places beautiful
All of Your hand, all of Your gift to mankind

It’s Christmastime, dear heavenly Father
It’s summertime here, not cold like it is elsewhere
And koalas, and kangaroos, and little birds
Cuddle and jump and do sing
In places wonderful
You spoke and it was so, Your life giving word

It’s Christmastime, dear heavenly Father
Hear our praises, adoration, abounding joy
Take our hearts, and with all of creation, listen
We love You, We love You
All peoples everywhere
Lift our voices in worship, Hallelujah

Dear heavenly Father
How can we ever express how much we love You
How much we love Your only begotten Son, Jesus
Your love surrounds us
Your love indwells us
Your creation amazes us
And Holy Spirit enables us to love You

CHRISTMAS MELODIES (Early Christmas Song Lyrics)

carol singers decoration singers

Can you hear the birds a-singing
All around the world tonight
Singing softly, calling through
The cloud of needs and smiles a-bright

Chorus
Oh! Christmas ’twill soon be here
It’s nearing that time of year
The air will fill with Christmas cheer
When love abounds in hearts so dear

Can you see the flowers swaying
Perfumed, sometimes serene stills
Posing or in lost valley
Painted fields and fluorescent hills

Chorus
Oh! Christmas ’twill soon be here
It’s nearing that time of year
The air will fill with Christmas cheer
When love abounds in hearts so dear

Can you know the little creatures
Bounding through our nature’s store
Sensing a change of season
Reflecting life’s sweet gift and more

Chorus
Oh! Christmas ’twill soon be here
It’s nearing that time of year
The air will fill with Christmas cheer
When love abounds in hearts so dear

Can you feel the joy crescendo
Trying to find its release
Showing all, life is precious
May love and peace forever increase

When love abounds in hearts so dear
The air will fill with Christmas cheer
It’s nearing that time of year
Oh! Christmas ’twill soon be here

BE LED BY THE STAR THIS CHRISTMAS (Christmas Song Lyrics)

Mary and Joseph

Be led by the star this Christmas
Be led every day of the year
See the life that He has given you
And how He holds you oh! so near

Be led by the star this Christmas
Be led and He’ll show you the way
Hear the sweet and angelic praises
And how He turns nighttime into day

Be led by the star this Christmas
Be led by the Light ever true
Feel the warmth of the wonderful Son
And the heart of the One who loves you

Be led by the star this Christmas
Be led and follow wherever He goes
Tell of the purity of His salvation
And the fragrance of Heaven’s Rose

Be led by the star this Christmas
Be led and you’ll forever be free
Believe on the beautiful Gift from above
And then you’ll have eyes to see

THIS STARRY NIGHT (Christmas Song Lyrics)

Elegant Christmas tree

It has all been leading up to this
This beautiful night, this starry night
The story unfolds, salvation comes
Mankind’s sin, in love, to send to flight

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

Beautiful night, a new beginning
Love permeates the earth and darkness
We didn’t comprehend our great need
Till opened eyes saw we were heartless

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

In truth, love and joy, we have this hope
None other could have ever given
Immanuel, Christ with us, He came
So one day we could be forgiven

Come hear the little babe
Come see His wonderful Name
God came down
Pure love adorned
A babe fit for His future crown

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

CHRISTMAS TEARS (Song Lyrics)

tears dropping an instant picture

When you find yourself lost and alone
Upon the road of celebration
When those who know you, love you, leave you
Don’t see the tears you shed in silence
May the season draw you close, keep you
And fill you with joy’s jubilation

Chorus
Christmas tears, yes, we’ve all had them
When family and friends aren’t here
O Let the beauty of December
Find and release hidden Christmas cheer

Some footsteps may need to be taken
The horizon may look different too
The air will become so much sweeter
The birds will sing familiar tunes
Life will take on new meaning for you
When you let go, and embrace what’s true

Bridge
Christmas tears
May they become
Your Christmas story
Healing tears
Let them fall, into waiting ears
’Cause the dreams of all your yesteryears
In Jesus, are wrapped in His presence

So let Him dry them, oh my dear
No, there is nothing you need fear
Let Him turn them into tears of joy
Let’s begin again, this brand new year

Chorus
Christmas tears, yes, we’ve all had them
When family and friends aren’t here
O Let the beauty of December
Find and release hidden Christmas cheer

WHO WILL RING THE CHRISTMAS BELLS (A Song)

Kids Signing Christmas Carols

Who will ring the Christmas bells
And fill the streets with cheer
Little children, do gather round
And break silence from off the year

Who will ring the Christmas bells
And fill our hearts with joy
Little children, do gather round
Calling every sweet girl and boy

Who will ring the Christmas bells
And fill our homes with hope
Little children, do gather round
And dance along with skipping rope

Who will ring the Christmas bells
Tinkle – ling – ling – ling – ling – ling
Christmas bells oh! let them ring
Tinkle – ling – ling – ling – ling – ling
