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.’ ” 

Relief

Man of Sorrows
Well-acquainted with grief
Sinless and faultless
Yet condemned like a thief.

Changed human history
Though His time on earth brief
Mends broken hearts
From sin brings relief.

MT 2021

NKJV 1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 
1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

True One

Shining in deepest darkness,
Piercing through darkest night,
Jesus the King of glory,
Jesus the Lord of light.

Jesus the Alpha-Omega,
Jesus the true God-Man,
Jesus the Lion of Judah,
Who arose out of Israel’s clan.

Jesus God’s One and Only,
Jesus God’s holy Son,
Jesus the Kinsman Redeemer,
Who makes Jew and Gentile one.

MT 2021

Joh 1:9  That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.  [1:10] He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

Luk 2:32  A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” 

Living Stones

We’re being built up a spiritual house,
An abode that is fit for the King,
And we can build it stronger each day,
By the praise and worship that we bring,
May your house be a beautiful place of peace,
Fit for heaven’s High King to enter,
May it be filled with love and every good fruit,
With the throne of Christ in the center.

MT 2020

NKJV 1Pe 2:5 
you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 

To The Weary

The Maker of the heavens, the moon, the stars,
Sees your tears, your fears, your scars,
And traveled from His heavenly kingdom afar,
To break your chains and prison bars.

Your troubles, trials and tribulation,
Headache, heartache, pain and frustration,
Christ can turn into hope, joy and jubilation,
If we surrender to his offer of sweet salvation.

So come all you weary, down-trodden and oppressed,
He will shower you with love, joy, peace and rest
For Christ made your heart and He knows it best,
Just call His name and be eternally blessed!

MT 2019

Matthew 11:28 NKJV [28]
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Ambassadors

We are ambassadors of peace and reconciliation,
A royal priesthood and a holy nation,
Born again, Christ’s new creation,
Built on His Word as the sure foundation.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV
[20] Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Blessed

My soul is wonderfully, beautifully blessed,
For Jesus the Lord is my hearts honored guest,
And I am invited at the King’s kind request,
To enter His presence and find peace and rest.

MT 2018
