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?” 

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. 

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. 

Rest and Rely

While it may not be very popular,
And will cut to the heart as well,
I believe Christ died on a cross
To save us from sin, death and hell.
I also believe He rose from the grave,
And in glory now reigns on high,
That His word is eternal and absolute,
On these truths I can rest and rely.

MT – 2020

NKJV Act 2:37-38
[37] Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” [38]  Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

Tender Counselor

God’s Sovereign right hand,
Rules in earth, sea and sky,
While that same tender hand,
Wipes each tear that we cry,
We may not understand,
The how, what, when and why,
But His will will be done,
Here and now, by and by.

MT – 2020

NKJV Psa 33:10-11 
[10] The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. [11]  The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.

Mercy

I owed Him ten thousand talents,
A sum I could never repay,
But the Lamb of God cancelled all my sin debt,
When He went to the cross that cruel day.

For the mercy of God met His justice,
And neither could be set aside.
But the Father’s mercy triumphed in Christ,
When the Prince of life suffered and died.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 86:5 
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
