Though

Though the mountains may erupt with flames,
And the north wind bitterly blow,
Though the rain may flood great rivers,
Or drought make them cease to flow,
One thing is certain and secure,
Jesus Christ is Lord of all,
Sovereign Ruler of heaven and earth,
Who hears when His children call.

MT 2022

Psa 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 
Psa 46:2  Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 
Psa 46:3  Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah 

Who Is This?

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
On a cold, crisp winter morn,
The one foretold by a prophet,
Of a virgin would be born.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Born the King of the Jews,
Whom shepherds came to worship,
And wise men paused to muse.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Whom Simeon worshiped with joy,
Lifting his voice up loud and clear,
To praise Mary’s baby Boy.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
The One true Savior and Lord,
Born of David’s royal line,
By heaven and earth adored.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who deserves all honor and glory,
The author and finisher of our faith,
The perfection of God’s love story.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who has come to make all things new,
The sinless, blameless Lamb of God,
The Word of God faithful and true.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To reconcile God and man,
Conqueror of sin and death,
Fulfilling God’s master plan.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To usher in lasting shalom,
By crushing the serpent’s cursed head,
And leading His children home.

MT 2021

Mat 2:4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.  2:5  So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:  2:6  ‘BUT YOU, BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDAH, ARE NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE RULERS OF JUDAH; FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME A RULER WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.’ ” 

Unbearable


Christ gives liberty to the captives,
Is a compass for the lost,
He is shelter from the fiercest storm,
When our lives are tempest-tossed,
For His mercy knows no boundaries,
And from heaven to earth His grace crossed,
To fulfill the glorious, ancient plan,
And to bear the unbearable cost.

MT 2021

Mat 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” 

Luk 24:26  Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 

Willingly

She wasn’t concerned with the gossip,
That the women might spread and tell,
She wasn’t afraid of the scandal,
For her heart and her soul were both well,
For she trusted God as her Father,
That His Word would prove faithful and true,
That this baby Boy that she would bear,
Would be Savior of me and you.

Luk 1:38  Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. 

Serenading the King

Born of a virgin in a borrowed stall,
No earthly advantage at birth,
Lowly Shepherds greeted the infant King,
When the Holy One came to earth.

But angels marveled as God became flesh,
Serenading the newly born King.
As Jesus took His first full breath,
The heavens of heavens would ring.

For the heavenly host could not contain,
The wonder and joy of the news,
The Child asleep in a manger that night,
Was Messiah and King of the Jews.

MT 2021

Luke 2:11  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 

Luke 2:13  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 
Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” 

Enrolled

For many years
I lived under God’s wrath,
Then I met Jesus Christ
And He showed me the path,
From the road to perdition
To the streets of gold,
And in the book of life
My name is enrolled.

NKJV
1Th 5:9  For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

Expectation

I see Your beautiful handiwork
In Your glorious diverse creation
And Your amazing love and abundant grace
In Your wonderful gift of salvation
And one day all will praise Your name
Every tribe, tongue, people and nation
So may we be ready at the trumpet sound
Filled with faith, hope and great expectation.

MT 2021

NKJV
1Pe 1:20  He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 
1Pe 1:21  who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
