Christ humbled Himself and became a man

With a message He came, obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on a tree to save our soul

This was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

He died for you, He died for me

He brought us His Word, He brought us grace

Christ gives us power to run in this race

He gives what we need to live a holy life

He’s our strength in temptation and in strife

I’ve tasted God’s goodness, I’ve tasted His ways

From His commands I never want to stray

Christ is my Savior, He is my Lord

He is my comfort when in discord

Christ changed my heart, for this I know

As I practice His ways there’s fruit that shows

Jesus is more than just a friend

I know He’ll be with me till the very end

I love my Jesus with all of my heart

I try to put Him first right from the start

There’s power in the blood, there’s power in the resurrection

If you submit to Jesus He will give you more than affection

He gives us love, He calls us His heir

I hope you will choose Jesus, This is my prayer

Life is like show and tell

Since the beginning when man fell

We show the world how we beat those odds

How we walked away from all them gods

Our life is like how we walk

More than the way we sow our talk

The way we talk is how we live

With strength from our Savior

grace we give

Our walk is meant to please our God

With Truth from His Word we are awed

With perseverance we remain steadfast

With grace from our Savior we will last

In the end we will receive a crown

In a place where there will be no frowns

Heaven is a place where there will be no tears

We will not have to hide or stand in fear

We will be giving our Lord all our praise

On that day the church he will raise

Let’s put Christ back in to Christmas

He was born our King

He came with a message

Salvation He brings

He came to redeem man

From his evil ways

We know He’s our Savior

To Him we sing praise

We seek Him and praise Him

From deep in our heart

To Him we give glory

How He set us apart

Our lives He did enter

We welcomed Him in

He sent us His Spirit

And freed us from sin

Let’s put Christ back into Christmas

The world has it all wrong

It’s not about presents

We praise Him with song

It was God’s plan from the beginning of time

To put Christ on the cross to redeem mankind

For man was in rebellion against our great God

It was man’s sin that caused him to be flawed

Along with the sin man decided to hide

Separated from God no longer at His side

Man had to work by the sweat of his brow

Herding the sheep and pushing the plow

Fast forward in time around 4000 years

Jesus was born with a message so clear

Even from birth, He gave the world hope

That His great love was spread through the globe

The reason He came was to die on the cross

He rose the third day, therefore saving the lost

Jesus’ walk was perfect from birth

To redeem us from sin and give us rebirth

From the beginning of time, man’s life was filled with sin

We all know we don’t want satan to win

So we pray to our Lord to give us His Grace

To give us His strength and His love through this race

Sin had a debt that had to be paid in full

So that you can have life, oh what a jewel

 

Christ paid the debt of all that was due

There is nothing required of me or of you

 

There is nothing you can add to His unfailing grace

Christ’ gave us all that we need for this race

 

Mercy and grace is provided by God

Man can’t do a thing all because he’s flawed

 

No amount of works can take the place of grace

We have to put trust in Christ, grace come thru faith

 

I hope that you know there’s a call on your life

Put your trust in God and reach out to Christ

 

God put Christ on the cross so you can have His grace

It’s the gift of God, will you join us in this race

 

You don’t have to wear no fancy clothes or a shiny hat

Put your faith in Christ, He’ll meet you were you’re at

Lord it’s to you my heart I give
Passion for You is how I want to live

You made a way to give grace a start
It’s Your grace that opened and changed my heart

Your mercy is what saved me from death
I’m grateful for each day You give me breath

It’s Your love that put Jesus on a cross
It’s Your plan to redeem and save the lost

You alone raised Jesus from the grave
For all who believe they will no longer be a slave

It is You who breaks my chains to sin
You left me a guide and He lives within

It’s Your Spirit that convicts me when I’m wrong
It’s Your Word that guides and makes me strong

Your wisdom is what I need to help me change
When I do it’s my life that gets rearranged

The gospel is what we’re called to share
Your Truth is how You show You care

Salvation comes only through Your Son
He is the Light and He is the only one

The greatest gift God gives is free
All because Christ died on a tree

Christ paid the price once and for all
So you can live to answer Gods call

If you are thinking about God
But your hold up is that you’re flawed

Ask God to reveal Himself to you
That is exactly what He will do

He will show Himself in a way
That you’ll want to respond today

Your heart has a voice within
Asking you to let Him in

So if you heed His call
He will give you His all
