Topic: Christmas Day


Lyrics

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

Chorus 1:
Come let us adore him
He has come down to this barren land
Where we live
And all I have to give Him
Is Adoration

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

(Chorus 1)

Chorus 2:
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

(Chorus 2)

Broken Wings - Lyrics

Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light in our souls
Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold are always first to go
And who’s to say we won’t end up alone

Chorus:
On broken wings I’m falling
And it won’t be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees I’m bleeding
And it won’t be long
I’ve got to find that meaning
I’ll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love
Mend the broken homes
Care for them
They are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold are always first to go
And who’s to say we won’t end up alone

(Chorus)

Lyrics

Thinking things over
What a crazy ride
You have blown my expectations
You are so very alive
Living in a time and a place
In the middle of the plans You made
As crazy as it truly seems
You far exceed my wildest dreams
I’ve got no room to complain
There’s never any room

CHORUS:
It’s all so good
Carry me away
It’s all so good
Daily You amaze me
The things that You do
I will always be in awe of You
I will always be

Thinking things over
You really make me smile
You are more than a distant father figure
You are the unpredictable God
There is so much more now
There is so much more now
You’ll show us all if we let You
You’ll far exceed our wildest dreams
We’ve got no room to complain
There’s never any room

We all come into the world with nothing
We’re all gonna leave the same way
Everything is a gift from You
Without faith, hope, love
It’s a fool’s parade
We all come into the world with nothing
We’re all gonna leave the same

Ain’t got no reason to complain no, no, no, no, no

Lyrics

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes
I'm marking it down to learnin'
I am

I don't think that I could take another empty moment
I don't think that I could fake another hollow smile
Well it's not enough just to be lonely
I don't think that I could take another talk about it

Just like me you got needs
And they're only a whisper away
And we softly surrender
To these lives that we've tendered away

But, I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes
I'm marking it down to learnin'
I'm marking it down to learnin'
'Cause I can

I don't wanna be the one who turns the whole thing over
I don't wanna be somewhere where I just don't belong
Where it's not enough just to be sorry
Don't you know I feel the darkness closing in

I tried to be more than me
And I gave until it all went away
And we've only surrendered
To the worst part of these winters that we've made

But, I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes
I'm marking it down to learnin'
I'm marking it down to learnin'

I am all that I'll ever be
When you lay your hands over me
And don't go weak on me please
I know that it's weak
But God help me I need this

I would not sleep in this bed of lies
So toss me out and turn in
And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes
I'm marking it down to learnin'
I'm marking it down to learnin'
'Cause I can

Lyrics

I know you keep a journal and every page is rippled
From the tears that you cry, ain’t no meanin’ to your scribble
Cause words can’t describe what you’ve been feelin’ inside
It’s like thousand foot walls, and they’re still on the rise
But look up to a beautiful sound
And see for yourself you’re not that far down
And know this, I cannot love a little
My promise to you is unconditional

Pre-chorus:
And I’ll keep the light on for you
Just keep the course, you can weather the storm
I’ll keep the light on for you
You’ve come this far, don’t you ever lose heart, now

Chorus:
Just turn around and I’ll be there
I’m moving into your atmosphere
Just turn around and I’ll be there
I’m moving into your atmosphere

I know you’re all alone in a crowd full of friends
I can see it in your eyes that your fadin’ again
Checking out, moving into your hole
Where the light can’t touch any part of your soul
But hold up and let the river rush in
You can turn around and start livin’ again
Cause your life is a beautiful bloom
In the image of the one that created you

I’ll be there

Said I’ll be there, said I’ll be there
Said I’ll be there always, forever

Lyrics

All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me
He never did anything to hurt anyone
But He said something ‘bout being God's own Son
Some people believed Him, some people received Him
Some people wouldn't stop till they saw Him die

Chorus:
All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me
All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me

Like an innocent lamb He was taken away
He never opened His mouth He had nothing to say
He just let them accuse Him, He just let them abuse Him
And the people wouldn't stop till they saw Him die

(Chorus)

They nailed His hands and His feet to the wood
At the foot of His cross all His enemies stood
He said Father forgive them
He gave them all He could give them
Then He gave up His life and they watched Him die

(Chorus)

They laid His body in a rich man's tomb
But He rose from the dead and He's coming back soon
You can choose to believe it, you can choose to receive it
You can choose to believe that He died over you

All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me
All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man . . . all over me

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still

I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up, oh (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart

"I'll be over at ten", you told me time and again
But you're late, I wait around and then (bah-dah-dah)
I went to the door, I can't take any more
It's not you, you let me down again

(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'

For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful, baby
You’re the one who held me up, Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through, Through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘cause you believed
I’m everything I am because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand, I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed, because I was loved by you

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
You were always there for me
Your tender wings to carry me
Light in the dark shinning your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration, through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

CHORUS TWICE

Lyrics

As I look into the stars
Pondering how far away they are
How You hold them in Your hands
And still You know this man
You know my inner most being, oh
Even better than I know, than I know myself
What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I, what am I
As I look off into the distance
Watching the sun roll on by
Beautiful colors all around me, oh
Painted all over the sky
The same hands that created all of this
They created you and I
What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I
That You might die, that I might live
What am I, what am I, what am I, what am I
What am I
What am I
What am I
What am I
What am I

Lyrics

I remember when you were just a girl
And I was a boy in a big man’s world
We had no idea what time would reveal
Little did we know that . . .

Over a million tears had to fall
That is no exaggeration, ‘cause I counted them all
Every sad and senseless incident
Has been mine to recall

But you never gave up, you never gave in
You never said “No, I can’t take any more of this”
You never gave up, never gave in
You refused to believe that love would come to an end

Chorus:
Oh I almost threw it all away
Traded truth for a lie, diamonds for clay
Oh I almost threw it all away

Through clever thinking and strong imagination
Twisting the truth into any configuration
I’d find myself doing things I never dreamed I could do
I’ve known the kind of pain
Where you can’t catch your breath
You say if this is life, please bring me death
Thank God that wish I made never ever came true

But you never gave up, you never gave in
You never said “No, I can’t take any more of this”
You never gave up, never gave in
You refused to believe that love would come to an end

(Chorus)

True love doesn’t come and go
Here today and gone tomorrow
Doesn’t speak a wicked word
That breaks the heart in two
Doesn’t renegotiate on what it knows is true
Doesn’t give up, give in, throw it all away

(Chorus)
