CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

MESSIAH HAS COME! LIFT UP YOUR HEADS!

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
The fullness of time has arrived and the grace
of God is revealed for all of mankind.
His arms are wide open to give His embrace.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
The angels deliver the message of peace
for God has sent Jesus from heaven to earth
to deliver from death--its power will cease.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
True life has come for people on earth
The promise is given for those who will seek.
Messiah has promised for each a new birth.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
One day we will stand in his presence in heaven,
free from life's sorrows and sickness and pain,
free from the hold of sin's old nature's leaven.

Messiah has come! Lift up your heads!
Let rejoicing begin and our praises ring out, 
for Jesus has come to show us God's love.
Messiah has come! Of this we will shout.

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

I love Christmas carols. So many times we hear the music, but don’t know the words. They have a tremendous message about Christmas! I thought it would be neat to post Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

Hark the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled."
Joyful all ye nations rise; join the triumph of the skies,
with the angelic hosts proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark, the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King."
 
Christ, by highest heaven adored, Christ the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold him come, offspring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see; hail the incarnate Diety,
pleased as Man with man to dwell, Jesus, our Immanuel!
Hark, the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King."
 
Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings, risen with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by, born that man no more may die,
born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth.
Hark, the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King."
