Singing

Joy to the World (Unspeakable Joy)

Verse 1
Joy to the world
The Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing!

Verse 2
Joy to the earth
The Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy!

Bridge
Joy! Unspeakable joy!
An overflowing well
No tongue can tell
Joy! Unspeakable joy!
It rises in my soul
Never lets me go!

Verse 3
He rules the world
With truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders of His love!

Joy to the world
The Lord is come!

Hope Has a Name

Verse 1
Breaking through the silence
With glory in the highest
The hope of all creation
Resting in His mother’s arms

Verse 2
A song on the horizon
Ringing through the heavens
The long-awaited Savior
Come to set the captives free
Come to set the captives free
Come set us free!

Chorus
Hope has a name
Emmanuel
The light of the world
Who broke through the darkness
All hail the king
Emmanuel
The light of the world
The glory of heaven

Verse 3
We didn’t see it coming
The story of redemption
What started in a manger
Ended in an empty grave

Bridge
Come if you’re broken
Come if you’re searching
If you need healing
He’s where you find it

Lay down your burdens
And breathe in forgiveness
If you need freedom
He’s where you find it

O Holy Night

Verse 1
O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world
In sin and error pining
Till He appeared
And the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine!
O night when Christ was born
O night, O holy night!
O night when Christ was born

Verse 2
Led by the light
Of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light
Of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men from Orient land

The King of kings
Lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials
Born to be our Friend

He knows our need
To weakness is no stranger
Behold your King!
Before Him gladly bend!
Behold your King!
Before Him gladly bend!

Verse 3
Truly He taught us
To love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break
For the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy
In grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us
Praise His holy name!
Christ is the Lord
O praise His Name forever!
His pow’r and glory
Evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory
Evermore proclaim!

Closing Song

Jesus, Messiah

Verse 1
He became sin who knew no sin
That we might become His righteousness
He humbled Himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing!  Love so amazing!

Chorus
Jesus, Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer
Emmanuel!
The Rescue for sinners
The Ransom from heaven
Jesus, Messiah
Lord of all!

Verse 2
His body the bread, His blood the wine
Broken and poured out, all for love
The whole earth trembled and the veil was torn
Love so amazing!  Love so amazing!

Bridge
All our hope is in You!
All our hope is in You!
All the glory to You, God
The Light of the World!
